During a recent job interview they asked me about my previous work experience.
My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned: couldn’t concentrate.
Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn’t hack it, so they gave me the axe.
After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn’t suited for it. Mainly because it was a so-so job.
Next I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.
I worked as a pilot but eventually got grounded for taking off too much.
Then I tried teaching but I couldn’t make the grade.
I spent a few years as a Psychiatrist but everyone’s problems drove me crazy.
I wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn’t cut it.
Then I tried to be a chef–figured it would add a little spice to my life but I just didn’t have the thyme.
I attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I couldn’t cut the mustard.
My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn’t noteworthy.
I was a pretty good eye doctor, but I could not stay focused on the job.
I worked a long time as a doctor.
I gave it my best shot, but I didn’t have enough patients.
Next was a job in a shoe factory; but it never touched my sole.
The Energizer Battery Company hired me but then expected me to keep going, and going, and going…
I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I couldn’t live on my net income.
Thought about becoming a witch, so I tried that for a spell.
I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining.
I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn’t up to it.
So then I got a job in a gymnasium (work-out-center), but they said I wasn’t fit for the job.
Of course, I tried being a secretary, but it turned out not to be my type of work.
My years as an exterminator were pretty good, but I got tired of the rat race.
Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking even thought it kind of turned me on.
I was a gardener for a while, but I didn’t grow with the job even though I was racking in the money.
My career as a comedian was a stand-up success, but the critics thought I was a big joke.
After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until I realized there was no future in it.
My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.
You got any ideas? I’m opened for suggestions……maybe you have something that WORKS…..cause I don’t!!

According to Emily Post, you should not give your boss a gift unless it is from a group of employees.
This will avoid the appearance of currying favor from your boss.
In other words ~ No sucking up!
Would Massaging your boss be considered “Sucking Up”?
Boss’ Day (alternative spelling Boss’s Day, also known as Bosses Day or National Boss Day) is a secular holiday celebrated on October 16 in the United States and Canada. It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their boss for being kind and fair throughout the year. The holiday has been the source of some controversy and criticism in the United States, where it is often mocked as a Hallmark Holiday
One interesting feature of this occasion in India, is that Boss’s present gifts to their subordinates.
Poems for Boss’s Day
Appreciation Poetry for Boss
A Small Poem
“Doing special favors
In a dozen different ways
Looking out for others
With no thought
Of thanks or praise
Treating workers like a family,
Setting good examples, too
These things make a wonderful boss
And they all apply to you!”
Appreciation On Boss’s Day
“This day is special and it’s just for you
To tell how much we appreciate you
We cannot tell how happy we are
To have the boss the way you are
We have someone who listens to us
We have someone who guide us through
The problems could have never been simple
If you had not given us confidence to fight them through
You have accepted us the way we are
You have made us perform and make that mark
The joy of success has always prevailed
Because the failure distinctively got nailed
We are a team and we love to perform
We like to take storm by its horns
We now know how to rock
Because we are lucky to have you as our boss
This day is special and it’s just for you
To tell how much we appreciate you
We cannot tell how happy we are
To have the boss the way you are”
For A Wonderful Boss On This Special Day
(A poem by Audrey A. Cooper)
“That special boss, you work for
A Special poem from all of us
There are many bosses in this world, but
None of them can compare how special you are, to all of us
You have that special quality that lets each of us,
Be ourselves, even when we may over bearing at times, it seems.
You have that special quality that doesn’t change any one of us,
Only to enhance and bring out the best qualities in each of us,
And we all thank you for that.
You are a very special
Boss to all of us!
Happy Boss Day!”
Being A Boss Is Tough
It is not always easy to be the one in charge
In charge of fixing the daily conundrums
Having to make the call can cause the nerves to flair
Flair with fear and raw vulnerability for what’s unknown
And the issues get more gnarly as the day wears on
Wearing patience thin and testing tired brain cells
Why would anyone want to be the boss?
The boss gets all complaints and aggravation
Constant interruptions render plans obsolete
Obsolete and out of touch before clearing the gate
Being a boss comes with these and many more challenges
Challenges roller coaster emotions and many more energy
These diversions don’t overshadow the reasons to lead
Leading is about people, connection and excellence
Leaders can see and develop our potential
The potential to fully express and utilize our talents
The boss cares about whether people are engaged
Engaged and unencumbered by rolling curd
Hats off to all leaders who get through the muck
The mucky muck of business to help people be great
Jobs would be unbearable without great bosses

Little Johnny went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers). The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation.
Little Johnny: ‘Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman: (at the other end of the phone line): ‘I already have someone to cut my lawn.’
Little Johnny: ‘Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now.’
Woman: ‘I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.’
Little Johnny: (with more perseverance) : ‘Lady, I’ll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach , Florida.’
Woman: ‘No, thank you.’
With a smile on his face, Little Johnny replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.
Store Owner: ‘Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.’
Little Johnny: ‘No thanks.’
Store Owner: ‘But you were really pleading for one.’
Little Johnny: ‘No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the Job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!’

They rub it and a genie comes out in a puff of smoke. The Genie says, “I usually only grant three wishes, so I´ll give each of you just one.”
“Me first! Me first!” says the administration clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.” Poof! She´s gone.
In astonishment, “Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.” Poof! He´s gone.
“OK, you´re up,” the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”
Moral of story: always let your boss have the first say.
