She Mail: Boss Has Yet To Open Christmas Present From Employee
Julie Fisk is here to help. If you’ve need advice or want us to hash out a problem on the air for you, let Julie share some of her wisdom.
I gave my boss a gift right before Christmas and it’s still sitting on her desk. SERIOUSLY! She was out of the office for the holidays but we’ve all been back since last Thursday and it’s STILL sitting unwrapped by her computer. I mentioned it to her yesterday but she still hasn’t touched it. It’s like she couldn’t be bothered to even do anything with it.
I can’t help but feel a little offended by this. Should I be insulted? Or am I over-reacting?
Getting the Bossy Blow-Off
Dear Bossy Blow-Off,
Everyone in the room agrees that YES, it IS a little insulting. I can’t imagine having an unwrapped gift sitting on my desk for WEEKS. Doesn’t she want to know what’s inside? We think that you should take the gift to your boss at some point and ask her to open in while you’re sitting there. Do it on a lunch break or at the end of the day, so it doesn’t interrupt your work. If there is a particular reason that she ISN’T opening it, hopefully she will tell you then. You should also do some investigative work to see if you’ve done something to upset her, just to be safe.
