Bill at Bourke Accounting once warned that Bourke employees should avoid talking about politics, sex or religion with clients.  This was sound advice last year, but it’s imperative this year.  As a country, we have become polarized to the point that a few inches of cloth are causing assaults.  If we can’t avoid stabbing each… Read More

During our weekly staff meetings, we at Bourke Accounting are allowed to express ourselves.  Whether it’s a suggestion for a new type of file folder or an elaborate concept for marketing, we are able to speak freely without fear of ridicule.  It’s nice to bounce infant ideas off of others and examine them from a… Read More

It’s not easy to forget to do your taxes when you work for tax preparers like the ones you’ll find at Bourke Accounting.  Between getting your W2 placed right in your hand, mailing out tax organizers and talking about nothing but taxes all day, you would have to deliberately will yourself to neglect your own… Read More

We love you. You’re very special. – A Soon-to-be-Indicted President to violent Capitol rioters When the sun rose on Thursday morning, it brought dread with it; like murder victims splayed on autopsy tables, fear and uncertainty have been exposed in the light of a new day.  Will today bring another bombing?  Will unhinged masses again… Read More

Although the holiday season is over, you may find that you’re still receiving gifts from friends and acquaintances.   It’s nice to be surprised on a dismal Tuesday, after the holiday hype, with a giftbag vomiting sparkly tissue paper.  In fact, here at Bourke Accounting, we just received a box of chocolate-covered Oreos from a vendor;… Read More

Yet again, the holiday season is responsible for tension and social disagreement.  As a personal aside, I have never been so insulted in my life!  Yesterday, my co-workers decided that I am the official Bourke Accounting Scrooge in residence.  Usually, Bourke workers get along like a Christmas tree a-fire, but this unwarranted designation will not… Read More

When I started at Bourke Accounting, one of my Bourke bosses told me about an incident that had occurred early in his career at his first job.  It seems that a client said some pretty X-rated stuff to an administrative assistant.  My Bourke boss was having none of it and “fired” that client on the… Read More

Bourke Accounting does the holidays to the extreme for its employees.  However, Bourke management really outdid themselves for us this year and we’re starting to understand why.  At the beginning of our shared Covid odyssey, Bourke workers randomly spoke about holiday travel plans.  Some lamented that their homes would be transformed into hostels for out-of-town… Read More
