We have this concept of a Spot Award at work. It's generally given to someone who does something really commendable in a short period of time. So today my boss got one.
It's slightly out of the ordinary, since I've never actually heard of managers getting this sort of appreciation. It seems to be totally different from the time I got one. (I never wrote about that. It happened a month or so before I started blogging.) This felt a little weird, but definitely felt good, because it is most certainly very well deserved. I've mentioned before that I really like my boss.
We had our share of fun by congratulating him over and over again, knowing fully well that he was finding it a little weird too, and didn't entirely enjoy being congratulated. We also got him to take us all out for lunch. Good day for him, good day for us.
