Full of himself

Today, my boss gave me an autographed photo of himself, after he heard that I think he's intimidatingly attractive. FML

Creepy boss alert! You have two options: give it back and risk being fired for hurting his ego or head back to your desk and discreetly put it through the paper shredder.

It's not creepy. It's clearly a gag gift to try and defuse the awkwardness. He's saying "I know, but it's ok...forget about it."

Buying her flowers or dinner...THAT would be creepy.

(Or am I wrong and is 'an autographed photo of yourself' a legitimate dating strategy that works these days?)

@ 33 It works as a way to pick up a date if you play the rest of your cards right. But alone? Probably not.
It just depends on who the guy is, and the woman.
To be clear, I'm not saying the boss wanted to use it as a pick up for a date. It sounds exactly like what you said. I just wanted to answer your question that yes, it is possible.

He's just trying to give you with Desensitization Therapy.

He wants you to dial it back to merely "incredibly attractive," so that you can be in his presence and submit to his will.

Umm... Say "thank you" and forget about it? Sounds like a harmless prank to me.

(Or a boss who thinks very highly of himself. But who can blame him if he's intimidatingly attractive? It doesn't sound like a big deal.)
