I know why you're here.
Everybody else took the week off and you're stuck at work trying to look busy, so you're reading a blog.
Tsk. What would the boss say?
Oh wait, he's one of the ones who took off for vacation. Well then, he's in no position to talk.
Okay, if you're going to be stuck at work, then the least I can do is try to distract you.

Take the rest of the day off. Tell the boss I said it was okay. Oh wait, that's right, he's on vacation. Well then, go for it!
