Welcome to My Life of Organized Chaos Where Crazy Eventually Catches up to you!


Christmas Do Over

Ever have one of those moments...

When someone walks up to you and hands you a gift and you didn't get them anything?

Yep. Just happened.

This is my 4th year at my office. We don't really do a big exchange or anything but the first year I worked here the other admin and I said we'd both buy our boss something.

So I did in 2003, 2004 and 2005. In 2003 & 2004 he always gave all 3 of the admins something.

Last year I gave him something with about a week to go before the holiday. Christmas came and went with no gift from my boss. No biggie.

As I was putting together my list of "to buy for", I thought long and hard about getting something for my boss...since he didn't reciprocate last year and I didn't want to keep getting him something if he wasn't...it just felt so weird. I ended up deciding against getting him anything, which was great since Casey's sister-in-law is going to be born next Spring and I bought her a lovely ensemble...and of course I had to send packages to THAT CHICK OVER THERE's twins...cuz well they're just cool like that. I want to be a rockstar like them when I grow up.

WELLLL boss just came over....handed me a car and wished me Merry Merry. He then STOOD here while I opened it and when I didn't have anything to give him...I felt like I was standing naked in Times Square next to Dick Clark with 1 minute til Midnight.

I want a "Last Work Day til Christmas Do Over".

*shudders* oh hell almighty! I just had one of those moments yesterday. Thankfully JOSH had to deal with the awkwardness as he brought the gift home from work from his friend (you know, Xander's dad).

I just have to deal with the uncomfortable OH HELL DO I RECIPROCATE EVEN THOUGH JOSH SAID WE HAD NOTHING moment. *sigh*

Think of this as payoff for your workplace sucking monkey dildos. He owes ya one for last year. Now you're even.
