Gavin’s Joke of the Day: 9 February 2018

My new boss is a nightmare – he never lets anybody take time off work unless they’ve given lots of notice; but I was feeling very tired and needed a few days off for a last minute holiday bargain.

I climbed on top of the filing cabinet and hung on to a light fitting.

“What are you doing?”, a colleague asked.

“If the boss thinks I’m crazy, he’ll have to let me have a few days off,” I replied.

Sure enough, the boss came in and asked what I was doing. “I’m a light bulb,” I said.

“You’re crazy – go home and have a few days rest.”

So I put my coat on and began to leave; but as I was heading to the door, my colleague put his coat on too.

“What do you think you’re doing?” the boss asked him.

He replied: “You don’t really expect me to work in the dark!”
