For years, I have called people at work “Boss.”
“Hey, boss” is a pretty typical greeting from me, and it really helps to break the ice with folks. Many people think it is either a little funny or odd that I am calling everyone “Boss” but it works. The fact that it really helps if can’t remember names is just a coincidental bonus…
A few weeks ago we started a new small team at work that handles many miscellaneous tasks. Their email name is “Los Jefes,” which is Spanish for “The Bosses.”
For some reason, that made me really happy to see at work.
Just thought I would share!
