First of all, I want to thank you for being my boss. You’re not perfect, but you’re a pretty good boss. Yeah, you could give me more days off and not keep me up working until 1am so much, even though you know that it’s best for me to get to bed by 11:30pm. And yes, you could give me enough time—not just to gulp down lunch—but to take an actual lunch break every day. And you could certainly not make me work on weekends. But working for you does have its perks.
You let me start my work day in the afternoon instead of the morning, allotting me time to pray, make breakfast and work out. You trust me enough to let me work in my bedroom, at coffee shops and at my friends’ houses. You let me run personal errands in the middle of the work day when if I need to. Some days, you let me go to the park or beach to read and relax, or encourage me to indulge in a three-hour lunch with a friend who’s visiting from out of town.
You look out for me—not just professionally—but personally. I appreciate that.
I know that you’re new to being a boss, but as your employee, I just want to say that I appreciate you and thank God for you today and everyday.
Happy National Boss’s Day!
(Hopefully it’s okay that I used the word “love.” Hopefully you don’t report me to HR.)
