time off



Was gonna put that but then thought would you say ‘oh I can’t do that on Monday cause i’m on time off’?

I can see why your colleagues have that secret blog about you.

Holiday if I’m on holiday, annual leave if it’s a day to do my other job or something mundane

Leave, as holiday implies that I’m going on holiday, which isn’t always the case.

Half the fun though is
‘I’m on holiday next week’
‘Oh nice where are you going?’
‘Probably the co-op at some point for more crisps’


When I was younger, and my time off work would be carefree it was holiday.

Now I’m older and my time away from work will be filled with childcare, decorating and a considerably lower ratio of fun stuff, I just tell people I’m on leave

Holiday but sung like this:


I tend to only have enough days to take leave to do my other job and the enforced days we have to take at xmas when I’d much rather be working.

Henceforth i shall call them: Bare minimum capitalism relief days



One of my minor irks is when I mention to colleagues that I’m going on holiday and someone asks if I’m “going anywhere nice?”

No, I thought I’d go somewhere really shit for my week off.
