  • Awkward Situation thread......re: Boss' Day

    So, there are three people in my group and, while this is only my second year, it's something that they/we've done every year for the guy...I've got no problem with giving him a gift, he's a nice guy...but this is what irritates me

    We agreed on a $50 gift card from Best Buy and one of the ladies volunteered to pick it up....today, I got this email:

    "I ended up getting an Amex gift card instead. I went to Walgreens and they had either a $100 or $25 to Best Buy and didn’t want to get 2 $25 cards. I have the card and will distribute it around for all to sign."

    should this irritate me?

        Pay a little extra? have you not done the math? Joe is out $33! The original gift was $50. That is crazy!

          It's not even really the money 007...although it is more than I want to spend on a mid-october gift for my boss

          but it's really that I received that email... "hey, didn't consult you two, just made a decision....i'll be around to collect"

            What a dumb thing to get your boss. I can see baking him cookies or something (actually, really...I can't - boss' day is about the stupidest thing I've ever heard of), but I can't imagine what my boss would think of me if I went up to him and handed him a hundy.
