Why is it that even though I love my job, have tons of really interesting work to do, I still want to take off early when my boss decides to take the afternoon off? Human nature? Or is it they way we're brought up in the US?
You know how in elementary school whenever the teacher called in sick and you had a substitute you just ran WILD?
Or in high school when your parents are out of town you throw a party and have friends over?
And now when my boss isn't here I find myself yearning to ditch work, go home and finish up Harry Potter.
