I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew my boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted crazy he would tell me to take a few days off. So I hung upside-down on the ceiling.
My co-worker, who’s blonde, asked me what I was doing. I explained that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the boss would think I was crazy and give me some time off.
A few minutes later the boss came into the office and asked, “What in the name of God are you doing?”
I told him I was a light bulb.
He said, “You are clearly stressed out. Go home and rest for a couple of days.”
I jumped down and headed out of the office. When my blonde co-worker followed me toward the door, the boss asked her, “…and where do you think you’re going?”
She said, “I’m going home, too. I can’t work in the dark.”
