Sick Leave


Lantern Swinger
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 coworker (who's blonde) 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 good GOD 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 coworker (the blonde) followed me, 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!! :oops:

geoff(ers) :?

G'day all

Sick leave. Swing the lantern, when I used to come home on leave from where ever I'd been, even if it was only to Gib, or even round the UK, and I wanted to get another week at least, I'd go down to this old Lady Doctor, who loved the Navy and their exploits, she would ask me where I'd been, tell her some far fetched tale. What I'd done where me and my oppos went ashore what we got up to.

In the summer I'd tell her about still skiing whilst on the Cod war ships, about fishing for salmon in the short fast flowing rivers round Iceland, in the winter I'd tell her that I had just come back fro the Far flung. Gave her some believable tales about seeing some beautiful temples, tiger balm gardens etc. worked every time except once, which is too long a story at this time in the morning, The two other matelots in the village all did the same and you could be sure of at least one week no trouble. lol
