As most of your
colleagues will be on vacation, it is the best time to stay back and
suck up to your boss and get that much-promised raise.
If your boss is
away for a summer break, you can be on vacation without going and
spending on one. Remember, when the cat’s away the mice will play.
You can crib about
not being able to go on a vacation and act the martyr, making
vacation-bound colleagues guilty. They will be nicer to you through
the remaining months-- after all you sacrificed your holiday for
Going on vacations
is a recurring expense, and all for only a few days in cooler
climes. Instead, invest the money to aircondition your life, from
the garage to the loo, and that too forever.
You might return to
discover a theft....of what else but your precious Net hours.
If you go on a
vacation there is a risk of your husband ogling at all the beauties
on the beach or the hill town Mall. Keep him away from temptation.
Since all his
friends will be away, use all your husband’s time and attention to
your advantage. Indulge him so much that he becomes a pathetic
afternoons together holed up in your room. Summer heat is supposed
to be some sort of a aphrodisiac.
It’ll be a
godsend for your neighbour who has been going green with envy eyeing
the greens in your garden.
Enjoy the sights
and sounds of the town after your chattering friends have fled to
the hills. The aloneness will provide you with a new perspective.
Your maid might use
the opportunity to elope with your gardener and take all your jewels
and household appliances as her dowry. You’ll really be ‘helpless’
without, not one, but two house helps!
- At the end of it, you might need
another break to recover from the tiredness of a vacation.
