How can you still have fun if your BOSS is going on the cruise?

At the other pool, in the other bar, in the other dining room.....


The ships are large enough that you should be able to keep enough space between you, if that is what you want. Also, don't forget the days in port!

OHHHH! IC! My DH is like that, too!

O.K., take the wife with you. If he is REALLY old, you can out-distance him. You'll be headed back the other direction before he can ever catch up to you!

Even better! He will be easy to lose! And you know, you can always use the excuse that YOU got lost!

What ship and date will all these evasive moves be taking place? 8)

How and why did you get on the exact same cruise with the Big 'Ole Sap Sucker?

The way I see it, if you work for the Government, you had BETTER have a sense of humor!

Monty, if you need any more help, just ask!

We are fortunate that Liz' boss is cool, pays for a happy hour(s) every night of the cruise, and gives everyone shipboard credit !!

Of course, his MOM is the travel agent booking the thing so.....

Monty,
If he's that old and feeble just steal his s&s card while he's naping and buy drinks for everyone! (that's what my staff would do to me) Let me know when you are planning this because I'll be on the Glory at the same time as you.

btw - I do work for the govt.

Alright, Monty, if you choose to follow KTbone's advice and Lou is buying the drinks, I think I can be on the Glory for the sailing on the 21st! Be sure to point Lou out to me, so I can give him a great big smoooooooch!


Won't be long until it is time to sail! Have you done the doc dance, yet? That is when you know you are REALLY going on a cruise! It is also the time to pull the suitcases out! 8)

number one tip for crusing with the BOSS: take interoffice memos that indicate a nice big fat raise, a year-end bonus; company vehicle and expense account; take 2 originals with you on the cruise; get the BOSS lubed up and when he goes to sign for his sail and sign card; slip the memos in front get a signature on each - an original for you and an original for him; keep mum until you return to work and let's say about two weeks later (let him deal with the PCD first) remind him of the raise, bonus etc.....

Ok OK OK OK OK
Monty,
I will have to buy you a few drinks, (I guess). But, don't get any ideas about bringing memos from work..........
We both work for the government also and you know how easy it is to get raises!
I am glad everyone has a great sense of humor.......... I do too.... As I will need it!!

Lou, you will know me. I'll be the one with the really big, blonde hair, the too tight shorts and T-shirt, 4" heels, and the bright red lipstick. You'll probably hear me before you see me, people tell me I have a very distinctive laugh. And I keep telling myself I'll diet next year, but hey, I just love all the good things in life! Will your wife be with you?

There were only 4 boys that went.. I had no problems with them but the girls they met on the ship was another story..
This cruise was pay back. My wife took our daughter and a bunch of girls 4 years earlier.... I figured if she could do it, I could... That was her 1st cruise too!!!
