7 Sure Ways to Force Your Company to Close for the Holiday

December 21, 2021

Who does your boss think they are? Keeping you at the office when Christmas is only a week away? Don’t worry, as always, Zikoko has a solution. These are the steps to claim your title as the boss and CEO of your life, and get the hell out of that office for the holidays.

1. Don’t show up at all

My dear, do CEOs rush for anybody? No. You arrive when you arrive because na you dey steer this ship.

2. Remove your shoes at the door

If not showing up is too much of a risk for you, it’s okay. You can do this one. Just remove your shoes at the door and walk around the office barefoot. That’s the next step to letting them know you’ve arrived this season.

3. Move your chair to the middle of the office

You can jam some music too so the office can have holiday spirit.

4. Call out his/her bullshit

Are you fucking want wo se yeye mi! Since HR is sleeping, it’s better to take matters into your own hands. 

5. Stop bathing and brushing for work 

You can also move into the office. You have to be committed to this thing. By the time you say good morning twice, your oga can just evacuate the place on your behalf. 

6. Bring your partner to the office

There’s no reason to keep your love at bay anymore. If you need privacy, just tell the office to ask their boss to step out so you can have a bit of enjoyment while you work.

7. Host your family for the day

Remember when your boss said you were all one big family at the office? This is the time to prove that. Carry your village people with you to help out at the office. A few words of prayer and anointing oil will sanctify the office for a new year. They gonna see werey.

Try any of these steps and HR will send holiday notice before the week runs out. Then you can chill and take some Zikoko quizzes during the break!
