Cranky Co-Workers Day- October 27th

You probably know them. Every office has these nervous, irritating workers with the bad temper and the short fuse who always have something negative to say.
These people you're glad when they don't get to work, no matter what the reason, because when they're with you in the room, they just ruin your workday.


Cranky Co-Worker Day is designed to raise awareness that these people exist in every office. This day is the perfect opportunity to release and bring out what you have suffered from them with your nice attitude.


  How to celebrate the Cranky Co-Worker Day?
  It is best to celebrate the day of cranky partners to work by not doing. Do not try to encourage them when they complain, do not try to convince them that the situation is not as bad as they see it. Just take away freedom and ignore them.
  You can also send them an angry cat's memes and wish them a Happy Cranky Co-Worker Day if you think it will not upset them too much.

On the other hand, you can also cooperate with them and complain with them about everything. You may find it fun to get all the steam out one day a year. Maybe it's nice to be like them, who knows?


Boss's day- October 16th

The boss's day, or the manager's day, is a secular holiday celebrated every year, on October 16 or the next working day, if it falls on Saturday or Sunday.

This day is intended to strengthen the bond between the employer and the employee, and it is customary to thank the bosses for being courteous and fair during the year. Boss Day is celebrated in several countries: USA, Canada, Lithuania and Romania.

Although this holiday is quite controversial, perhaps because not everyone feels the need and desire to celebrate it, but since it began, in 1962, it is gaining popularity.

It started in 1958, when Patricia Bays Haroski wrote "National Boss Day" at the US Chamber of Commerce, working as a secretary at State Farm in Deerfield, Illinois, and chose that date because it was her father's birthday.

Her goal was to improve the atmosphere at workplaces and show appreciation to her bosses she thought they deserved. It was also a strategy to try to improve inter-office relationships between managers and their employees. Haroski believed that young workers sometimes do not understand the hard work and dedication that their superiors are required to bring into their work. After all, the bosses are the ones responsible for getting the job done right.

Four years later, in 1962, the governor of Illinois, Otto Kerner, declared this day as an official holiday in the country and over the years it became an international holiday that is also celebrated in countries such as Australia, India, Ireland and Egypt (which celebrate it on different dates).

International Fun At Work Day- The Last Friday in January

The last Friday of January celebrates the fun day at work. It's a day to fool around, have fun, laugh, sing, dance, dress funny and whatever comes to mind at work.

"Work" and "fun" are two words we usually do not expect to find together in every situation, but it does not have to be that way. People with a positive spirit and a commitment to keeping their lives happy and full of light can find ways to have fun in everything.
Many people spend a significant portion of their lives at work, so why not try to enjoy it?

Dave Hemsath and Leslie Yerkes, authors of "301 Ways to Have Fun at Work" say "organizations that incorporate fun at work have lower levels of absenteeism, higher job satisfaction, increased productivity and less downtime."

Today is the time to do a chairs race, throw papers at each other, put on music, dance and sing in the office, put on gel nail polish, have a picnic and more (all within the bounds of good taste and with the approval of the management of course).
Tag this day on social media in the hashtag #FunAtWorkDay

6. The Geek - He never sees sunlight. Usually lives in the basement of his parent's house reading and playing computer games. His only experience with women is Lara Croft. If you come to him with minimal problems like missing a toolbar, you get a four-hour lecture on information security. Playing every day on PS3 despite he was recently passed the age of fifteen. Comes to the office with a cup that says "There's nothing like mom." His house is full of computer parts scattered that he enjoys to dismantle and assemble again and again.

It was so hard for me to finish the presentation, I had eye sockets pressure, sinus and I started a little cough, but still managed by a human!". When she enters a doctor's appointment to complain about the fund feel unexplained throat and a beauty spot suspicious, the doctor sees on a computer that she was there two hundred times this month.
