ALLOW US TO be the first to wish you a Happy Boss/Employee Exchange Day!

Yeah, we hadn’t heard of it until today either, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t mark this questionable holiday in our own special way.

So, what’s it all about?

Well, it was created by the Yanks (no surprises there), designed to fall on the Monday directly after Labor Day and acts as an opportunity for the upper echelons of a company to swap places with their staff, and vice versa.

Ostensibly, it’s a team-building exercise, but it sounds like a Monday in hell to us.

Let’s be honest, the boss/employee dynamic has been rife with tension since time immemorial, and Twitter has spent years reminding us how awkward the relationship is with the help of some godawful anecdotes from the workplace.

So, not to rain on anyone’s parade here, but here are just a few reasons why this day is doomed for failure.

1. When your humour is totally wasted on them.

2. ‘So… eh… how’s your water?’

3. Sorry, but we can’t.

4. Get your KitKat and leave, damn it.

5. For the love of…

6. Those stars aint cute.

7. And then there’s this.

8. Yep, you’re not coming back from that one.

9. ‘Guys, guys, allow me to interject here…’

10. Yep. that’ll do it.

 11. ‘And it’ll be good to see you again… in a few minutes.’

12. ‘So, how’s it going in there for you?’

13. No, no, that’s when you just leave the group.

14. Well yeah, there’s always that.
