Tonight, I learned (once again) that honesty is the best policy.
I have the worst assignment in the history of the world, and I just can't do it. Anyway, I work all day tomorrow, but I really needed to take it off, so I could finish my assignment. Otherwise, I may as well quit uni and get my money back. So, there are two options.
Option One: Lie and say I'm sick
Option Two: Tell the truth, and not get the day off
A few weeks ago, I took Option One. In an unbelievable coincidence, all of the computers at Uni were down, just for that one day, so I couldn't do any work at all.
Today, I took Option Two. And, my boss (God bless her) said take the day off.
So, I told the truth, and I got the day off.
He Smiles On Me.
