Brown nosers, start your engines. National Boss Day is observed Friday, Oct. 15, this year. Some flower companies urge you to honor your boss for a full week: Oct. 10-16.
The annual date of National Boss Day is Oct. 16. But since that's a Saturday this year, we celebrate on the Friday before the official holiday.
Buying a gift? Shop carefully.
Giving your boss a present that's just from you is an etiquette "don't," according to The Emily Post Institute. Obviously, it's easily interpreted as a way of brown-nosing.
The best course of action: "Get together with the others in your department and give a gift from the group," The Emily Post Institute notes.
