The boss

• I'm no Anthony Woods, when it comes to telling jokes -- nice going, Anthony -- but please allow me to relate the following 'true story.'

My boss was complaining at a staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect. Later that morning he went out and returned with a small sign that read: "I'm the Boss." He then taped it to his office door.

Later that day, when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had taped a note to the sign, that said: "Your wife called, she wants her sign back." It wasn't me -- honest.
