Business Travel Blunder?

From http://images.businessweek.com/ss/09/09/0925_best_business_travel_blunders/26.htm

"I went to a dull, crowded convention near Anaheim. I decided to ditch and go to Disneyland, figuring nobody would miss me. I was having a wonderful time until I ran into my boss. I was so flustered I made up a story about finding a co-worker and hurried off. When we got back to the office the next Monday, there was an e-mail waiting for me from my boss. I was terrified that I was going to get fired. When I finally opened it, I was instantly relieved when he asked me to keep our Disney run to ourselves. I guess he didn't want everyone knowing he ditched, too." Wink

Oh my gosh! How funny is that?! Would your boss sneak off to Disney? Would you two be on the lam together? Do you think you'd have secret emails flying once you got back or be sharing vacation photos?

Hahaha! Now that's funny.

My boss would never do that. She'd be all about business at a convention.

Of course, if it were one of my folks that I ran into, I'd laugh and buy them a Mickey Ice cream and tell him or her to have a great time and we would secretly share stories when we got back.

My boss would most likely come up with a plan for BOTH of us to skip the dull stuff and go to Disney! I do have an awesome boss, though... biggrin

I can see my boss coming up with a plan to get some Disney time in for both of us.
