This week we covered bosses, winter, and Facebook. It's the Strange But True week in review!
Strange but True—Your Boss Is Just like You!—Take a look around your parking lot. Is there at least one vehicle that looks like it cost more than your house? Chances are you won’t find one. We tend to perceive our bosses as Scrooge McDuck or the Monopoly® guy—people who are mega rich! However, that tends to be the exact opposite!
Icy Winter Inspires Innovative Infrastructure for Commuting—This has been an exceptionally cold winter for most of North America, causing long—and often treacherous—commutes to and from work by car or bus as road conditions range from awful to inaccessible. However, if necessity is the mother of invention, then Edmonton, Alberta, has thought outside the box in getting employees to work in the frigid weather—by planning ice corridors so workers can skate to the office or factory.

Most people normally don’t take this into consideration when they post things to social media sites, like Facebook. But what happens if you were forced to be friends with your boss on social media sites? Would you be more considerate about what you post?
