Good Thing or Bad Thing: Part 1

Since I so often wonder if certain things that happen in life are a good thing or a bad thing, I'm starting a "Good Thing or Bad Thing?*" post. I'd like to say I'll always have "Good Thing or Bad Thing? Friday" or something like that but honestly, that's too much commitment.

Instead, this is Part 1:

Manager (boss' boss): So you're working early today?

JustRun: Yep, just a little. Have to get some stuff together for Monday.

Manager: Well, I'm glad you're going to get everything done. I see you've worn boots to the office today?

JR: Yep. They're very comfortable.

Manager: So you're getting everything done, in jeans and boots?

JR: Yes, I think I am.

Manager: I should wear my boots to the office. I've never thought of that before.

JR: Yes, you should.

Manager: Cool. We should all wear jeans and boots to the office.

JR: I agree.

Okay, kids. Good thing or bad thing? Or, just very weird thing?

* I just realized this sounds like "Deal or No Deal." But it's not like that. There's only a fraction of the excitement and none of the prize money.

Huummmm...tough call. I think it depends on the tone of voice used -that will definitely determine weather it's a good thing or bad. Either's Friday so if the boot comment is a bad thing them them to go pound sand and that you'll deal with it on Monday since now you got real things to deal with. Obviously she/he can't say the same for himself.

It is never a bad thing when the boss or the boss' boss sees you in the office early!! The rest of the conversation might be a little weird. Depending on genders for sure!!

It depends. Is the boss good-looking?

Reminds me of the Animaniacs "good idea - bad idea"

It seemed like a good thing.

The best thing about this is that you wear jeans and boots at all. Such a guy's girl thing to do.
Otherwise, I don't know if it's good or bad.
