My new boss

I got a new boss. He's much better than my old boss. He's technical, doesn't micromanage, and is more of a team player. I feel like we are working in concert not in competition.

Of course, he has his defects. Like, for example, everything I do he can do better. "Oh yeah, well get this!" He says and then he goes into a long winded story. After I hear the story, you know what? It is better then my story.

Like, for example, the time I told him I bent my thumb completely backward and had to wear a hand brace.

"You want to hear what happened to me?" he asked.

Well, not really, I just wanted to tell you my story.

So he dives into the story of his adventure on an ATV on some sand dunes. He came off this huge dune and saw a tree below the size of a postage stamp. He landed so hard the lug nuts on the wheels created slots where the holes had once been. His arms ripped out of their sockets and the steering wheel knocked out all of his front teeth.

Ouch. Yeah, that's a pretty good story alright. Better than mine for sure. Okay, you win.
