As a newly-appointed owner of my firm, this was the first year I got to review other employees instead of being reviewed. So this was the first time I've sat through other people's reviews, and the experience was enlightening, by which I mean it was anything but, at times.
There was, for example, much more cursing than I had anticipated. We run a pretty loose shop, apparently. Also, we discussed, at times:

To which I responded that up until that very moment I'd considered myself one of the younger people.
(She still got a raise.)
Also, I drew a pirate ship:
It's sort of a space-ghost-futuristic-pirate ship, which really I think highlights the kind of boss I am.
