Happy National Boss's Day

For those of us who have never managed others, Boss's Day feels like an unnecessary holiday because don't those people have the advantage every day? They're already the boss of us, what other perks do they need? I realize this is unsympathetic because from talking to friends who have managed others, I know being the boss can be just as big a nightmare as being the underling. Still, when I worked in a regularly structured organization with a supervisor, I felt no inclination to recognize a day for my boss.

But now I'm my own boss. I'm in charge of my own company, Welcome Dialogue, and I make my schedule, decide my hours and call all the shots. So on October 16th, 2015 I celebrate National Boss's Day for the first time ever because now the title of "boss" includes me.
