Oh boy, it’s Boss’s Day again. People had contributed a considerable amount for the department manager by the end of last week. The department supervisor’s collection, by contrast, was so small that a guy who doesn’t even report to him anymore contributed some money. And since you don’t get to sign the card unless you give money, the supervisor will be receiving a card with a whopping three signatures on it. >.<
(In case you’re wondering, office politics work roughly like this: underlings contribute to a group gift for Boss’s Day, and the bosses give out nice gifts at Christmas. Like everything else here, “it’s always been done this way!”)
Bonus rant: my otherwise awesome insurance company has decided that my auto policy is “ineligible” for electronic delivery of documents. While I appreciate not having to print my insurance cards (I could have done without the extra copy of my entire policy though), mail service around here is spectacularly awful, and I really don’t want to run the risk of something like this ending up in the hands of someone who could do some damage.
