Retirement Wishes for Boss: Write an inspirational quote on a greeting card to say goodbye to a boss who is leaving the office. If you are going to give a farewell speech or write a short letter, take ideas from these messages to say something sweet. If all your colleagues shared a good bond, barrage your boss’ Facebook and Pinterest with funny one-liners about retiring and getting old. If you’ve always had an overtly formal relationship with your boss, a handwritten note should suffice to give your best wishes. Your boss may have been a tough manager but the only reason for his annoyingly angry personality was to pay the mortgage, pay the bills and put food on the table – just like everyone else.

2) Boss… as you prepare to pack up and retire today, we confess that we enjoyed annoying you in every possible way.
3) It always hurts to lose that one best person, who leads the pack at work and gets everything done. The person who moves ahead and takes everyone else along, who builds a winning team by making everyone strong. Farewell, boss.
