Merry iPad, I Got A Christmas

No, I didn't wake up Christmas morning to an iPad, because that would mean my boss was at my house this morning. I’ll just let that sink in... yes, you have interpreted correctly, my boss bought me an iPad for Christmas.

So why didn’t I blog about it sooner, like when I got it -- three days ago? Hmmm... could it be... I’ve been playing with it? Discovering the new world that has opened up to me? Basking in the glory of no longer being a technologically late bloomer, who only learned to text a year ago, to being someone who can stand up and declare, “I’ve downloaded an app!” Oh, how far I’ve come.

But let’s get back to the fact that my greatest stride came courtesy of my boss. To answer the previously posed question: No, I haven’t been too busy playing with my new iPad to blog. Truth: I’ve been shocked into writer’s block. Because my boss has NEVER in all the years I’ve worked for him EVER bought me a Christmas present.

Believe me when I say I’ve looked long and hard for an app to help me deal with the feels of guilt and remorse one has when one's previously difficult boss suddenly does something shockingly awesome. It doesn’t exist. Oh, but making your employee love you, my boss found out, they do have an app for that.


  1. Wow, you must have been on the "Extra Good" list. I'd be happy just to have a boss :) Merry Christmas and happy exploring.

  2. @Jules - Merry Christmas to you too. I am very lucky. After this I'm incline to believe anything is possible, even a positive shift in this depressing job market. Hope you are able to find work soon. Wishing you luck and prosperity in the new year!

  3. Awesome. You so deserve it. Maybe this is just a precursor to a more pleasant work environment, because I now do believe that all things are possible.
