Every once in a while, we all come up with funny little excuses just to score a day off work. However, this man’s idea is probably unlike anything you have ever tried before, its no wonder its cracking up ribs across the world.
61 year old Joshua needed a few days off, but he knew that his boss wouldn’t approve any leave requests. He thought long and hard about what to do next, and suddenly he had an epiphany. He realized that he could pretend to be crazy – his boss was sure to think that he was so stressed out that he couldn’t hold it together anymore.
So Joshua climbed up on his desk, grabbed one of the bars running across the ceiling and started hanging upside-down, all the while emitting a soft “bzzz” sound.
His beautiful blonde colleague stopped in her tracks when she saw him, and asked what he was doing.
Joshua replied, “I’m pretending to be a lamp so that the boss will think I’ve lost it and send me home.”
After hanging there for a few minutes, his boss walked in and nearly spat out his coffee when he saw the bizarre scene.
“Just what in the hell do you think you’re doing?” his boss asked.
Joshua replied, “I’m a light bulb.”
His boss looked lost for words for a few seconds, then shook his head and said, “You’ve been working so much that you’ve clearly gone crazy. I think you need to take the day off.”
Joshua climbed down and was just about to leave, when his blonde colleague packed up her things and went to follow him.
The boss turned to her, “And just where do you think you’re going?”
She looked at him as if the answer was obvious, and said, “I’m going home too. I can’t work in the dark.”
