My boss messaged me about a month ago as he was editing one of my reports to tell me that he had “completed the most complex formatting feat of all time” in Microsoft Word, as he probably felt his talents were going unnoticed.
Naturally, I then e-mailed most of the people that report to him (subject line: “best idea ever”) and got them all to pitch in for a giant custom trophy in recognition of his feat. Yes, that is a golden computer on top.
- Sometimes it takes 12 years to get recognized for something.
- Always take jokes as far as possible.
- People love trophies. Three feet max though. Let’s not be ridiculous here.
