My one and only employee, who shall remain nameless but will LOVE to see the idea of herself in print, will frequently lob empty compliments at me when I least expect them, then snicker to herself that I sometimes start to respond with thanks and gratitude. "You're the best boss I have." Yeah, whatever. She keeps me in line in other subtle ways like today when she said "Should I come back when you have a sense of humor?" Even when I'm bordering on madness, she still seems to like me enough to rib me a little. She really is the best employee I've got.
