From the Mouths of Babes ...

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:10pm

My day was bouyed up by the story of one of our members of staff who booked himself off sick, but didn’t say why. When his managers tried to get in touch to find out why he’s been off for over a week, they couldn’t get hold of him directly. He was always out at the Doctor’s or out with the kids, or out somewhere…..

Until today.

His manager phoned about 3.30pm and a little voice answered – the sick man’s son, aged 7.

“Is Daddy there, son?” asks the manager

“No, daddy’s on holiday” says son.

“Oh?” Says manager “Where has he gone on holiday” (thinking, perhaps he was in hospital or something).

“He’s on holiday in Australia” says the son.

“Ahh” says the manager “That would explain a few things….”
