As a writer and a comedian, I am my own boss. Since yesterday was National Bosses Day, I sent my wife flowers.
Being the boss isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There’s a lot of responsibility involved plus you can’t blame your mistakes on anyone else. That part really sucks. You try to fire someone for not doing what you’re supposed to do has a tendency to upset HR, not to mention the person you tried to hang it on.
That’s why I don’t have an HR Department. Aside from the fact that it would be ridiculous for someone self employed to have such a department, what would they do? I don’t need to hire or fire anyone, there are no benefit packages and the only one I can sexually harass is my wife and she actually gets upset if I don’t.
So I took myself out to lunch yesterday and had the company pay for it. It’s a good thing McDonalds serves breakfast all day now. I have no budget for expensive meals. When I say I, of course I mean we because it doesn’t take a genius to figure out who’s really in charge.
My wife works at our credit union so every time I spend anything, she’s instantly calling me wanting to know what I just spent five dollars on. Seriously, monetarily there is no getting around her. She is definitely the boss. Naturally, every man reading this knows exactly what I’m talking about.
Now you know why I sent the flowers yesterday.
See you tomorrow.
