DID you hear about the chap who asked for a day off?

His boss told him to consider the following statistics: “There are 365 days in the year. You sleep eight hours a day, making 122 days, which, subtracted from the 365 days, makes 243 days.

You have eight hours recreation every day, making another 122 days, which leaves a balance of 121 days.

There are 52 Sundays that you do not work, which leaves 69 days. You get Saturday afternoon off, this gives 52 half-days or 26 full days that you do not work. This leaves a balance of 43 days.

You get an hour off for lunch which, when totalled, makes 16 days, leaving 27 days. You get 21 days holiday every year, so that leaves only six days. There are five public holidays a year, which leaves just one day. And, no, you can’t have it off.”

I know it’s nonsense, but it’s fun.
