I was sure this was a thread for a fellow-member of the Forum! :lol:

I'm at my day-job, my boss comes and goes behind my back all the time - still took the time to order mine! :twisted:

:D It's the stamps themselves that are having a birthday & you're not alone in not being able to wait :wink:

I made sure I set up my cubicle so no one can get behind me without me having enough time to minimize or close windows on my screen 8) . But that comes from paranoia from my former job, where my supervisor would sneak into my office and read my email when I got up to visit the loo, grrrr. He also made no effort to conceal the fact he made a habit of reading my screen over my shoulder when he was in my office for legitimate reasons.
