1. And the Employee of the Month Is . . .

At a recent workshop I met a fellow who was wearing an
Employee of the Month t-shirt. The shirt was given to him,
well, by himself. Yes, he designated himself to be worthy
of the honour.

He went on to tell me how, at a former job, he instituted
an “Officer of the Year Award,” which, year after year,
he would win. Soon there was a statue, a plaque and an
annual banquet and party, all to honour the Officer of
the Year. Which of course, was always him, since he was
the entire judge and committee. It evolved into a huge
joke, which everyone played along with as an excuse to

A great reminder that if those of us we work with are
forgetting how great we are, we can always take matters
into our own hands . . .
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Give yourself a little perk by designating yourself
The “______” of the Year”, or page yourself over the
intercom and give yourself the day off, or buy some
flowers for your desk and tell co-workers they were
given to you as thanks for all your hard work by
the Committee for Workplace Excellence, which of course
you are the sole member of.
3. Quote of the Week

“Live within your income, even if you have to borrow
money to do so.” Josh Billings
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

The latest business buzzword is “Deja Moo”:
the distinct feeling that you’ve heard all this bull
somewhere before!

Happy Hump Day one and all! Mooooooooooo!
