Since National Boss’s Day is celebrated on Oct. 16 every year, it’s the perfect day for workers to show their appreciation for their bosses -- that is, if they have good ones. This year it happens to fall on a Friday, so for workers who want to participate but don’t have time to buy a card, some fun quotes have been provided below. The one-line greetings come courtesy of  Brainy QuotesThe Epoch Times and Latin Times.
