The Day Off

So you want the day off. You think a day is not too much. Let's take a look at what you are really asking for.

There are only 365 days per year available for work.

There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have two days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work.

Since you work only 8 hours a day and spend 16 hours each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91 days available.

You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break, that accounts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days available.

With a one hour lunch period each day, you have used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work.

You normally spend two days per year on sick leave. This leaves you only 20 days available for work.

We offer five holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days.

We generously give you 14 days vacation per year which leaves one day available for work and there is absolutely no way are you going to take that day off.

how does 30 min coffee break = 23 days and 1 hr lunch break = 46 days? I know this is meant to be a joke, but I was just wondering if the calculations were accurate. cheers!
actually u r rite. 30 mins a day for 365 days equal around 8 days rather than the 23 days. some fancy rounding took place here.
