Boss:  "Hi, how are you?"
Me: "Good, and you?"
Boss:  "Good.  So tomorrow is your birthday."
Me: "Yep, it is."
Boss:  "Well, I wanted to give you this in case I don’t see you tomorrow. (holding out envelope) I was going to get you a gift bond, but thought maybe you could use this now.
Me: (opening envelope to find a crisp $100 bill inside) "Wow, thank you so much.  I can definitely use this!"
Boss:  "You’re welcome.  I hope you have a good day tomorrow.  See ya."

I was pretty much in shock.  This will be the 5th birthday I’ve had since I started working here and he has barely even acknowledged any of them previously.  But, it was very thoughtful.  Every time I get really serious about trying to leave and find another job he does something like this that makes me want to stay.

  1. That is very awesome. The only reason my boss remembers my b-day is because it’s on the calendar.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I hope you have a great time at your party and get everything that you asked for. And many, many more.

  2. Holy cow! Maybe he’s realizing you are unhappy and wanted to try to cheer you up.
