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!”
