THE BOSSMAN COMETH ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Heads were turning -- if not rolling -- this morning at 7th and Montana as a pair of Worker-Bees got a surprise visit from their Boss. "Oh, no," one of them yelled, trying to duck under their table, "It can't be, it just can't be ...!" I looked at him, astonished and he explained, "I just spotted our boss and he's heading this way." "It's still early," I explained, "The workday hasn't even started yet, don't worry!" Moments later, a Black Porsche pulled-up and out popped "the Boss," an unassuming British Gentlemen who looked like he was trying to play the part of a Hollywood Mogul. "Howdy, mates," he said, "Fancy meeting you here." "We were just discussing work," said one of the employees, turning to me for support. "You betcha," I chimed-in, "Work, work, work ... that's all these guys were talking about. You're lucky to have a pair of employees like this." As I left, I couldn't help overhearing the Boss explain that layoffs were afoot in several "field offices." No wonder they were trying to lay low ...!

But wait...if the workday hadn't started yet, why is it bad that they were enjoying a cup o' joe? Don't be a slavedriver, Trevor!

I don't know what his name is, but he strikes me as a Trevor.

What these two blokes really need to do is find out what the Boss likes in his Starbucks coffee and what size.

Aw man...I thought you meant the real BOSS...Bruce Springsteen!!

I agree with Beth....if the work day has not started.....what is wrong with enjoying some caffeine before starting work? Unless the Boss is a bullie!

Hugs, Rose

I'm really suprised that ducking under the table didn't work.
