Every time you and the big BIG boss delivered my quarterly review I anticipated your comments more than his. But amidst the piles of documents there is a small stash neatly folded and packed like some kind of secret treasure to be protected from possible coffee spills or being lost during a move. It started out with a note. Your body language commands attention without begging for it, which is why people immediately turn to you for questions and advice. By subscribing, you agree to the terms of our Privacy Statement. I was walking toward the back room when you stopped me in the hall between the kitchen and dining room. You have a deep compassion and concern for the well-being of your employees and the greater public and make personal sacrifices every day to ensure the happiness of others.
But one day my actions started to be reciprocated.
Ask B. Scott: 'I'm Secretly Dating My Boss!'
You never took yourself too seriously, and yet when we had our side conversations and you eagerly discussed current events with me, I could tell you were being very sincere. Your pots and pans haphazardly cover your countertops where you spend a great deal of time cooking and not cleaning. But one day I happened to catch a glimpse of you paying attention to me. And I am not put off by the mess despite your insistent apologies, but rather, more excited to spend time in a space that you could enjoy without being sneaky about it. Even on the busiest and most migraine-inducing days you always found the time to come up to the desk and crack a few jokes with me. But would it have been worth it? Even in those moments where I would daydream of you and I closing shop and your arm caressing mine I felt tortured.
