So you want a day off. Let's take a look at exactly what
you are asking for.
There are 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 spend 16 hours
per 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 1-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 5 holidays per
year, so your available working time is down to 15 days. We
generously give you 14 days vacation per year which leaves you
only 1 day available for work. And I'll be darned if you are
going to take that day off !!!
