I urgently needed a few days off work, but knew the Boss would not allow me to take any leave.
I thought that maybe if I acted "CRAZY" then he would tell me to take a few days off.
So I hung upside-down from the ceiling and made clicking noises.
My work-mate (who is blonde) asked what I was doing.
"I am pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss might think I'm CRAZY ...and give me a few days off", I explained.
A few minutes later the Boss came into the office, gasped and asked "What are you doing?"
So I said "Oh ...I am a light bulb".
He said "You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days".
I jumped down and walked out of the office.
When my friend (the blonde) followed me, the Boss asked her
"...And just where do you think you're going?"
(Oh yes ...you will surely just love this... )
She said, "I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark"
