You know, you'd think that if there were things that most people WANTED to do, then said things would become socially acceptable. Alas, this is not the case. Consider:
Naps under your desk--Everyone has contemplated grabbing a quick nap under his or her desk on a long, tiring workday. So why is it such a big deal if you ARE taking a nap under your desk and your boss finds out? Hm?
Sick days for hangovers--Again, you'd probably get in big trouble if you missed some project because you had unwisely spent the Tuesday night before downing tacos and Tequila for a friend's birthday party. Lame.
Leaving early (or not showing up at all) when the weather is beautiful--We have SNOW days for excessive snow (at least here in the Midwest), why not have SUN days? Makes sense to me.
Yelling really loud and screaming swear words when you hurt yourself in public--OW! CRAP! @#$*@! Excuse me, I just stubbed my toe. Fortunately, I was in the privacy of my own home and no one minded that I just took your mother's name in vain. But if I happened to be out in public and stubbed my toe, I would be expected to just go pale, bite my lip and bow my head as though praying a long, painful prayer. This method is not NEARLY as effective in eradicating one's pain, but we're expected to swallow those F-bombs, nonetheless.
