'Boss' periodic Table sign 10" x 20"

alernative edgy freak geek nerd

Here's another one of my limited edition metal 'Periodic Table' signs for sale. 

Continuing on the theme of Bosses which I touched on last week:

Boss Periodic Table

I've had a couple of good ones, there was this German lady who was awesome and she loved to party. She threw me a 40th birthday party that was really insane.

I also had a supervisor that was a very traditional Japanese guy. For the first year I thought he was more the Lucifer variety of boss, but it was a year to the day of his supervision when he started treating me differently. I don't know if I'd changed, if he had a sudden change of heart about me, or if it was some arcane Japanese management style where I was an unwitting participant?

And then there was Theresa. I think she was completely misunderstood by most of the office. She seemed prim and proper, but she was really kind. If you got to know her you'd see this side of her; she'd do really nice things for people and take no credit for it and usually no one knew. I think she was the top boss. I was going through a bunch of disability stuff and she was so understanding and for that I'll be eternally grateful. I enjoyed them all! I look back and think how inspiring, or learned, or just cool they all were!

Now that I write this down I can't help but think of my many colleagues, doctors, clinicians and supervisors that I didn't mention. I owe them a post for sure! But this sign I designed with, Nicole, Rei and Theresa in mind. The best bosses a guy could ever have!  

Here are the words to a song by 'Wall Of Voodoo' 

Well, I've been doodling on this notepad
And I been taking telephone calls
I can tell this job's at the end of the line
And I'm ready for the fall
But I been watchin' the boss carefully
And he always seems to be havin' a ball
And then I scratch my head and wonder
Why I'm down here and he's up the hall

Now, all of my paychecks aren't worth
The paper they're printed on
I get 'em friday
But monday they're all gone
There must be some way to change my situation
It's time that I took up a brand new vocation

I wanna take a two-week vacation
Twenty-six times a year, add 'em up
When I fly to exotic places
My jet will be a lear
I'll need several secretaries
Just to jot down notes
I'll wear gucci loafers
And expensive shirts
And blue, executive, exotic coats

'cause i, I said I wanna be a boss
(I wanna be, I wanna be)
I, I said I wanna be a boss
And I'll have people workin' under me
And this lousy job I'll toss
I, I said I wanna be a boss

Well, I'll drive in fancy cars
Well, no, maybe I'll just cruise
With a limo and a chauffeur,
Tv, telephone, and booze
Tinted windows so the common folk
Can't see me here inside
Maybe every now and then for fun
I'll give some old coot a ride

Then maybe I'll slip him
A thousand dollar bill
Then he'll smile and shake my hand
And I'll put him in my will
I'm gonna count up all my widgets
And digits, and all my stuff
I'll make millions in a day
But it'll never be enough
Nope not enough!

'cause i, I said I wanna be a boss
And I just wanna take a four-hour lunch
And eat a steak with a1 sauce
I, I said I wanna be a boss
And I'll buy up every stock there is
From itt to doctor ross
I, I said I wanna be a boss
(I wanna be, I wanna be)

Now if I find a product I like
I'll buy up the whole company
Shave my face, and grin and smile
And then I'll sell it on tv
And everyone will know me
I'll be more famous than howard hughes
I'll grow a long beard and watch
Ice station zebra in the nude

And grow my nails like fu-manchu
Keep a row of specimen jars
Get other people to work for me, well
Maybe I'll buy the planet mars, and
Build an amusement park up there
Better than old walt's place
You'll have to be a millionaire to go
We'll smoke cigars and lounge in lace
Talk the talk of businessmen
And bosses that we are
So here's to me the drinks are free
'cause I just bought this bar

Yeah yeah, I wanna be a boss
I wanna be a boss, boss, boss!
Some kinda intergalactic boss!
