Don't get me started on my boss. The managing partner at my law firm is a notorious cheapskate. A day or two before Thanksgiving, a client sent about 20 assorted pies to our office (we employ over 100 people), intending them to be for the firm's employees to enjoy during lunch or coffee break. When the pies were delivered, the receptionist called the office manager to ask whether she should put them in the kitchen. The office manager called the managing partner, who ordered that all the pies be brought up to his office. He gave some to the other partners (all guys making six figures) and took the rest home for himself. I only found out about the pies because the client who had sent them called a month or so later to ask a fellow associate of mine how everybody enjoyed the Thanksgiving pies. His response? "What pies?" I guess Scrooge didn't need to pay for Thanksgiving dessert that year.
