Today is National Boss’s Day

Origin: National Boss Day was launched in 1958 by Patricia Bays Haroski, an Illinois secretary. Was she a mastermind suck-up? A person with an exceptionally wonderful boss? Or was she just a super-competent secretary whose boss added to her "to do" list: "Create national holiday in my honor"? Actually, she was an appreciative daughter who worked for her dad whose birthday was Oct. 16. That’s how National Bosses Day became the day to honor bosses.
