if my toddler was your boss
“If My Toddler Were Your Boss…”
- The elevator would play Disney theme songs, not smooth jazz.
- The power button on your computer would be pushed every time she
stopped by your desk.
-Crayons and markers would replace pencils and pens, for obvious safety
-Although she would go from crying to laughing to whining to screaming in a
moment’s notice, your boss would not be considered emotionally unstable.
- Your local water cooler would be filled with whole milk.
-Your sunglasses would regularly end up in the trash.
-Temper tantrums would be an effective method of negotiation.
-Powerpoint slides would only contain pictures, and the presenters would
deliver the presentation through song and dance.
-She would help herself to your snack drawer whenever she felt like it.
-The kitchen appliances in the break room would be for show only, because
your boss’s boss knows better.
- She would hang up your phone every time you were on a conference call.
- Happy hour with the team would involve a jungle gym and swings, and
certainly no alcohol. Backwashed juice and Goldfish cracker crumbs would
be enjoyed by all.
-She would openly fart, burp, and yes, poop, in front of you.
-The Monday morning “how was your weekend” question would be replaced
with “Mama” followed by 64 subsequent “Mamas.”
- The office of Dunder Mifflin would soon become a reality for you.
- She would undo everything you were doing as you were doing it.
- Your privacy: Terminated. Any semblance of a closed-door policy:
Terminated. And general productivity would drop faster than a spaghetti
thrown to the floor from said boss.
