Whenever I want a holiday which my boss is not approving for reasons such as “there is too much work at present or there are so many deliverables, how can you go?” etc etc – I have a superb ready-made excuse. It’s “Boss, I am going to take my laptop with me and will always be connected. Rest assured that I shall respond to all my emails and work on all the deliverables”. 🙂
But alas, the actual realty is quite different like in the comic strip below. 🙂
So if you too want a vacation but it’s not happening for similar reasons, try this one. However beware of frequent usage of this excuse or wish for a forgetful boss. Additionally don’t try this close to the appraisals.
Does anyone else also do this? 🙂
