Flowers for National Boss Day

Dear Diary,

Update from an earlier entry: "National Boss Day."

In the words of the great George Costanza: "You know, we're living in a society!  We're supposed to act in a civilized way."

I can not believe people do stuff like this.  Read this e-mail:

I ordered a flower arrangement from Chris Lindsay Designs

Total: $120.47 on my card.

$17.21 ea. Please (went over the $10 ea.) hope that was ok.. Payday is fine… J

Will be delivered on Bosses Day the 16th !

I'm furious.  In the first place, I did not want to participate in this.  I am not a fan of Hallmark-invented holidays.  Second, I agreed to $10.  Not $11, not $12; and most certainly not 17 freaking 21!

It infuriates me even more that she adds, "hope that was ok."  No, it's not okay.  And here's what sucks, Diary.  If I give her $10 instead of $17.21 then I look like a cheap jerk for not participating.

I am going to pay her with rolls of pennies and tell her to stick them where the flowers won't grow.
