I decided that I needed a few days off and I realized that I was out of vacation time. I figured the best way to get the boss to send me home was to act a little crazy --- he'd think I was burning out and give me some time off.
I came in to work early the next day and began hanging upside down from the ceiling. Just then one of my co-workers (she's blonde ... it'll be important later) came in and asked me what I was doing.
"Shh," I said, "I'm acting crazy to get a few days off. I'm a light bulb."
A minute later the boss walked by and asked me what I was doing. "I'm a light bulb!" I exclaimed.
"You're going crazy," he said. "Take a few days off."
With that, I jumped down and started walking out. My co-worker (the blonde) started following me, and the boss asked where she was going.
"I can't work in the dark," she said.
