Christmas Off

santa_cell_phoneCarol did a call brigade asking the Filipinos if we wanted to take a leave on Christmas day. Unfortunately for me, I used all my leaves for the whole year traveling to Philippines, Kenya, Armenia and South Korea.
“What? Orlee? You used all your leaves?” my boss asked.
“No Christmas leave for you then,” she told me, “Now, can you transfer this to Eugene,”
Tahill, my Indian colleague, asked, “What was that about?”
“It was our boss, asking if we wanted to take a leave on Christmas…. Tahill! Hurry! Pretend you’re Christian so you could take a leave.”
He looked at me blankly and said, “Orlee… I AM CHRISTIAN!”
Face palm moment.
