>I urgently needed a few days off work, But, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take 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 on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, so that the Boss might think I was ‘Crazy’ and give me a few days off.

A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, ‘What in the name of our good Lord are you doing?’ I told him I was 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 co-worker followed me, the Boss asked her, “…And where do you think you’re going?!”

(You’re gonna love this….)

She said, “I’m going home too… I can’t work in the dark.”

I e-mailed this to a co-worker and got this reply back.

Thank you…you funny princess just what I needed…starting laughing so uncontrollably that my boss came out of his office and told me to go home because he believed that I was suffering from MMBS syndrome, otherwise known and Monday Morning Blues Syndrome and it is known to be contagious so he sent me home. I will see you on Tuesday.

Your work is done here!
