Pretending To Be a Light Bulb

A guy urgently needed a few days off work, but he knew the Boss would not allow him to leave. He thought that maybe if he acted “crazy” then he would tell him to take a few days off.

So, he hung upside-down on the ceiling & made funny noises.

His co-worker asked him what he was doing.

He told her that he was pretending to be a light bulb so that The Boss might think he was “crazy” and give him a few days off.

A few minutes later The Boss came into the office and asked, “What are you doing?”

He told him he was a light bulb.

The Boss said, “You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.”

He jumped down and walked out of the office.

When his co-worker followed him, 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!”
