Need Advice ladies-Big Time-Update

This is a touchy subject. Before the holidays my boss let me know that she had a gift for me but left the card at home and felt really bad about it. We knew we weren't going to see each other for a week and I told her no problem and thanks and I would see her in the New Year.

So here I am back at work. I was out sick yesterday so this is my first full day back. No card as of yet. We did catch up already even though she's been in meetings most of the day.

The ? is, do I say something (my first instinct is absolutely not) She is a very good manager and a fabulous boss so I don't really think she will 'forget' to give it to me for long. Would you say something? If so, when?

TIA-this is a hard one!

Re: Need Advice ladies-Big Time



You are questioning yourself whether you should ask your boss 'where the gift is she told you she had for you'??

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!

She definitely did. I remind her of everything at work and personally..I'm her assistant and look after her. This is one area that I'm just going to have to stay away from.

Re: Need Advice ladies-Big Time

I would not say anything because I would not want to seem desperate for any gift.

When she realizes she forgot, she'll probably give it to you with profuse and embarrassed apologies.

Probably, she was so embarrased that she left it at home before. Of course I acted very non-chalantly. Of course you can give it to me after the new year...blah, blah..
