My boss can occasionally be a grinch.

He sent an email out to all of the Combat Operations folks (the floor) that the holidays were over and it was time to take all the decorations down. Night shift came in, and complied begrudgingly with his orders. When I walked in the next morning the place looked like a ghost town—all dark again. Except for one little corner…

As I approached my desk I saw a tree where my boss normally sat. They had taken roughly half the decorations in the CAOC and covered his desk with them—fully decorated tree with lights and tinsel included. Candy canes lined his computer screen, tinsel wrapped around his chair, the works. Although I almost collapsed from laughter, he failed to see the humor in it.

  1. Heh. That's one thing I really miss about working with guys in uniform...the practical jokes and ways of getting their point across in way that makes everyone laugh.

    That's good stuff, when you get back to the private sector, you may miss it too. Or not. ;)
