Bosses

At work today, my boss suggested that instead of casual Fridays we have "Hoe down Friday" in late June. So now instead of wearing jeans and a t-shirt, I have to wear overalls and a straw hat. I'm not looking forward to it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I went out to lunch with my work group. My boss said he was too busy to come, so we were all pretty psyched. Then we saw him at the bar of the restaurant, talking with corporate. Instead of coming with us, I think he was planning who he'd downsize. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, experimental jazz pinged through the speakers of my boss's computer. He just got a divorce and seems to be worried he's not "interesting enough." Here's the thing- experimental jazz doesn't make you interesting. It just makes you annoying. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I sent my boss a third or fourth draft of a letter we're sending out to distributors. He had his secretary hand deliver a printed copy. The note on top? "I liked the second draft better. Work off that." That's the draft he rejected. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I began giving museum tours at around 9AM. I work at an art museum. Anyway, my boss showed up around 10AM. He asked me if I'd start "pushing the gift shop" on soccer moms. I'm a docent, not a salesman. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I tried to position myself so I could look at the hot girl, Carly, that works on the other side of the floor. I was so concerned with seeing her that I didn't realize that my boss was watching me. Carly told me later that he actually gave me bunny ears. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was trying to connect to our wireless network (sometimes we use laptops at work). My boss showed up as I was frantically double clicking. "Why don't you just use dial up?" he asked me. I thought he was joking. Then he showed me the phone. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I emailed my re-re-re-re-recorrected report to my boss, who was working from home. He called me up on my way home (35mi commute) to tell me I sent the wrong report. After 30 minutes of him accusing me of being incompetent, he realized he was opening the wrong email. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I showed my boss a new draft of some stories that I've been working on for our company newsletter. He stared at it for a while and grimaced. "Once the newsletter gets popular," he said, "maybe we'll actually get some good stories." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we started scanning IDs instead of using our punchcards to punch in. Our boss stood next to the scanner the entire time. He said he didn't trust it. It's a scanner. If he wanted to catch people being bad, he should have checked out the break room. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss continued listening to "Pokerface" non stop. Except now he dances inside his office. The problem is that he doesn't realize his blinds are open. The good part? He's a surprisingly agile dancer. I watch. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my boss convened a meeting where we all were are cream puffs (or something like them). When I got out, my boss pointed at my nose. I scraped away cream and asked him how long it had been there.  "About an hour," he said. I'm dumbemployed.
