Good Career Move

One time, my wise older sister suggested that the best way to get a paid vacation from work was to pull my skirt up over my head and run around my workplace babbling incoherently.

This has been a bit of a challenging week. I'm wearing a skirt tomorrow just in case.

Can you bring a camera, too, please?

That's hilarious. Hopefully you won't have to wow and confuse anyone with your bare ass.

Ladies - I'd like to point out that I am, in fact, wearing a skirt at work today. (Must be power of suggestion...I wear jeans every single day.) I promise that if there is anything to film...you'll know before YouTube does.

Promises, promises...

You can't do this too many times or they'll catch on. You'll be the Klinger of the office.

Brutalism said...

Jason -- You don't remember that I used to do that when you and your siblings would make me crazy when I babysat? (Okay, just crossed some sort of line there and grossed myself out.)

Tante - A fair point. They already just make sure I'm not wearing a skirt on client meeting days. Perhaps the effectiveness has gone the way of Klinger.

They still let you wear your bra on the outside though, right? Because otherwise, you could claim a hostile work environment.

I think your sister was leaving out the best part of the paid vacation: the expenses are paid, too. Free '80s style canvas jacket with lots of buckles. Your own room. Free drugs. Free pudding.

And FL Girl in Sydney-do you know something we don't? I've always assumed Ms. Brutalism wears underpants. Reflecting upon this, thanks to your post, I suspect it was an unwise assumption on my part.

Brutalism said...

Tard - Free pudding made me laugh so hard I almost wet my lack-of-pants. (If you were truly a faithful reader of Brutalism, you'd know that I favor the Hanky Pankies -- the ultimate combination of underpants/bareassedness.) (Dear Hanky Panky -- feel free to send me free underpants now that I'm shilling for you.)

Is there any chance we'll see this show at the block party this year? I wanna make sure I have a good seat. And my kids don't. And my husband doesn't.

Wait, nevermind. Just bring a dessert.

Brutalism said...

Yin - Let's just hope the week leading up to the block party is not a stressful one. And that by "dessert" you don't mean "beer" because in that case...there is a very good chance you may see the show. (I'm not proud of that...simply a realist.)

Another one would be to remove your bra and wear it on your head like ear muffs then act like nothing unusual is occurring. :)

Brutalism said...

Vegetable Assassin -- Nice thinking. I'll be thinking of this fantastic advice while I'm on the beach in Bali. (Although, maybe that is not the type of paid vacation I'd receive...)
