A Few Days Off
I decided that I needed a few days off and realized that I had run out of vacation time already. I figured the best way to get the Boss to send me home was to act a little crazy, thinking he’d think I was burning out and give me some time off.
I came in to work early the next day and began hanging upside down from the ceiling. Just then one of my coworkers (she’s blonde-it’ll be important later) came in and asked me what I was doing.
“Shh,” I said, “I’m acting crazy to get a few days off. I’m a light bulb.”
A second later the Boss walked by and asked me what I was doing.
“I’m a light bulb!” I exclaimed.
“You’re going crazy,” he said. “Take a few days off.”
With that, I jumped down and started walking out.
My blonde coworker started following me and the Boss asked where she was going.
“I can’t work in the dark,” she said.
