It's National Boss Day - Tell Your Boss What You Think

This is National Boss Day, and we're not talking about Bruce Springsteen.

Oct. 16 is not a legal holiday but it is recognized by many as a day to say thanks to their boss or supervisor.

According to timeanddate.com,

The concept of National Boss Day began in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, then an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois, registered the holiday with the United States Chamber of Commerce. She designated October 16 as the special day because it was her father's birthday. Haroski's purpose was to designate a day to show appreciation for her boss and other bosses. She also hoped to improve the relationship between employees and supervisors.
