Office gift exchange Thu, Dec 16, 2010
One December a few years ago at our office Christmas party, I was forced to participate in a gift exchange where the value of the gift was capped at $15.  People bought things like wine, chocolate, and novelty desk toys.  The gift I received, which happened to be from my boss (who has since retired), was a mirror.  An ugly, metallic, craptastic mirror.  The price was conveniently listed on the packaging so that I would know the giver spent exactly $15.  From the quality of the gift and the very specific price tag, it was easy to deduce that my boss simply went to a local store, walked down the nearest aisle, and picked out the first item that met the cost requirement.  This is why I no longer participate in office gift exchanges. #business
