June 21st Take Your Dog To Work Day

This could get a little messy, but who cares… take your best friend to work today. Bring a little snack and a bowl for water and your set! You can take them for a walk at lunch and any other breaks you get during the day. Who knows, nay be your dog will inspire you to some great revelation that will earn you a promotion or raise. To me, it is better than Take Your Cat To Work Day because you’ll end up spending your entire day trying to find them. But a dog generally stays by your side and sleeps. A really bad idea would be combining the two days, no one would get anything done. And if you happen to be a skyscraper window cleaner, maybe not taking any animal to work with you is a good idea. Today was created in 1999 by Pet Sitters International, ironically a business where take your dog to work day is your work.

How to celebrate – Take your dog to work! Make sure it’s okay to take your dog to work. Work at home today so you can have your pet with you and not upset anybody.

April 3rd Don’t Go To Work Unless it’s Fun Day

This should be a great day! Don’t Go To Work Unless it’s Fun Day is a great day to celebrate. Of course, that may be followed by, Don’t Go To Work Because You’ve Been Fired Day! The premise is pretty easy to follow and frankly boss’ at work should make your environment a fun environment because more will actually get done if it is.

And honestly, any job can be made fun for the employees with just a little imagination by the employers. Many employers and boss’ get very grumpy with age. They are tired of what they are doing or they have a lot of headaches they have to deal with over the course of the day.  But the grumpier the boss gets the less employees do, and that is a proven fact.

Life is too short to just work for a pay check. If all it means to you is that you can buy more stuff then you are definitely in the wrong line of work. You can never buy your way out of a bad mood. Hence the old saying, “Money can’t buy you happiness”. But with that in mind, I wondered what some of the better, fun jobs might be.

Ice-Cream-Taster

Like a professional ice cream taster. Now it could get nasty if you are forced to try some new flavor like… broccoli ice cream. But for the most part, any ice cream is going to be good ice cream because the boss wants to sell it to a lot of people. So an ice cream taster probably generally has a fun job. They might get fat though.

Fun-Jobs-Youll-Definitely-Love

So maybe a better job would be a surf board tester! I mean, who wouldn’t have fun sitting on a surf board, in the ocean with your dog at your side!?! Maybe not the job for someone with a fair skin that burns easily, or if there is a hurricane blowing, or if there are sharks about but otherwise… why not!?!

How to celebrate – If you are a boss, make work fun for your employees today. If you are an employee, make work fun for your boss today. Greet everyone you see today with a smile.

October 16th Bosses Day

When arriving at work today remember it is bosses day. That is unless of course you are the boss. And if you are the boss, expect to be showered with lavish gifts and praised for your work, that is if you are a good boss.

In the army the General is the boss. Of course, he or she has a boss too…. the President. Douglas McArthur would have done well to remember this. The plain truth is, even most of our bosses have bosses.

In a school, the principal is the boss. A good principal creates a safe and exciting environment for their students and teachers.

And naturally, the mom is the boss of every family. Some think it’s the father but boy, are they wrong! It’s the mom that makes the household work, or not. They either create a home or just a place where we live. 

Good bosses realize that they have to follow as well as lead, listen as well as talk, and set examples by what they do.

Or they play music and are soap opera stars!

How to celebrate – Remember your boss today! Celebrate Bosses Day with a cake to honor your boss. Remember that most bosses have bosses of their own to answer to.
