I want to leave work an hour early today. What's a good line?
Will not be questioned.
our Head Of Marketing already has one of these. Before leaving early last week, he had a 'secret' conversation with his second-in-command (was going to say No.2 but decided against that terminology) and said he had to go because he was 'bleeding'. Now talk of his orifice is all around the office
Everyone knows its Belgium v Algeria today, just walk.
Had to see a Portugeezer about a German shepherd dog
bloody british gas
You've got to stock up on nuggets
But here of someone wants to shoot early and it's not gonna cause disruption I'm happy to let them do so so long as they make up the time another day!
I'm a great guy to work for though ;)
I'm a man of my word.
world cup fever
Here we could usually leave early as long as we made it up, even if it was for family visiting or some other non-urgent reason. Childcare if you have kids? Say you have a "rash"? Car problems? Say you feel unwell, then have a day off tomorrow as a bonus?
"I have to go now. There's something I...need to do...that I've been meaning to do for some time..."
*walk off shaking head*
Blame the bloody unaccountable Eurocrats. Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 617/2014 establishing the early curtailment of standard working hours for the viewing of FIFA World Cup tournament football matches.
stuff like that's pretty good
