It’s CHRISTMAS time again!
With this being my first year with the company I figured it would be a good look for me to sign up for this “Secret Santa” shindig they were organizing. They set a $30 maximum so I figured why the hell not.
I just happened to luck out and pick my bosses name out the hat! No sweat- I know what she likes and what she listens to so I got her a huge black & white poster of the NYC skyline to match her other posters & the new Lupe Fiasco CD as she loves his music.
So it’s safe to say I put thought into my extremely HOT gift for my boss. No? I think so. The person who picked my name out the hat obviously didnt get the “Hot Gift ONLY” memo.
So my secret santa drops off this lil’ shiny bag and says “HERE YOU GO! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!” So the set-up was great. I (excitedly) sift through the excessive gift stuffing paper to run into a tie. Now don’t get me wrong folks, I am a very appreciative person and the tie was decent BUT when I went I stumbled upon the rest of the contents in this very gift bag I was at a loss for words. (Sidebar- I am never at a loss for words)
So in addition to the tie she gave me a bar of chocolate and (get this)…a 24 box of fuckin’ CRAYOLA crayons accompanied by one of those faux old-school 100 dollar bill wrapped pencils. YO I WAS SOOOOO PISSED!! I wanted un-plug my keyboard, walk it over to her desk, and backhand her with it. Then throw (one by one) each and every crayon in that box at her.
Secret Santa: Good for some but for me, not so much.
