Rant incoming, sorry.
Was just informed that we’re doing a Secret Santa thing this year and apparently someone drew for me and I get to buy something for my manager. Great. One of the reasons why I liked working weekend nights is that I thought I was insulated from a lot of the workplace nonsense. I guess I thought wrong.
First off, a pretty much mandatory office Secret Santa is some pretty crappy BS. No, the winter bonus we get is decidedly not for us to buy a gift for our coworkers. Second, it really seems strange for the manager of the department to put their name in the hat as well. It’s just weird all around.
I work weekend nights and see my coworkers for about 2 hours each week. Whatever, I guess I’ll just buy $20 worth of chocolate or something.
