#8: Birthday Blues
Birthdays are kind of a double-edged sword, aren’t they? It’s a day for people to remember you, so if you’re lucky, you get notes and Facebook messages and cards, and awesome presents from people who care about you. But if people fail to acknowledge you on your birthday, that’s even worse than them not acknowledging you on regular days.
So this employee took matters into her own hands to make sure her boss would be recognized on his birthday by his boss’s office. Of course, now this poor guy believes that his boss isn’t a total jerk, which isn’t true, but still, he got an awesome birthday gift and got to feel good about himself.
