12 Things you do when your boss isn’t in the of­fice

Glamour (South Africa) - - Contents -

1 Ar­rive late. That ex­tra 25 min­utes of snooze time is the sweet­est. 2

Take the world’s long­est lunch break. 3 Leave early. I mean, you usu­ally stay late. In fact, if you added up all the over­time you’ve clocked up over the years, you’d be owed a week off. 4 Tick one key thing off the to-do list that you can in­form your ab­sent boss about on their re­turn, to prove how pro­duc­tive you were. “Fi­nally fin­ished that pre­sen­ta­tion, boss.” One gold star for you. 5

Come into work with the worst hang­over. 6 In­crease the work­place ban­ter with your col­leagues by at least 100%. Be­cause their boss is away, too.

7 Com­plete your on­line shop­ping. Charge to credit card or pay cash on de­liv­ery? The tough­est de­ci­sion you’ll make all day. 8

Refuse to an­swer any phone calls. Hey, you’re still reach­able by email. Well, oc­ca­sion­ally. 9

Catch up on your so­cial me­dia ad­min. Lots has hap­pened on In­sta­gram. And your Twit­ter bio could do with a re­write. 10 Avoid any big de­ci­sion­mak­ing. You’re sim­ply not qual­i­fied to make that sort of call. Your boss will be back next week, any­way. 11

Book your plane tick­ets for your week­end away. And the ho­tel. And re­search fun ac­tiv­i­ties. Oh yes, and res­tau­rants. 12
