...To get a passport.
Last time I got a passport (I even had it expedited), it took 5 minutes to fill out the form online, print it out, go to Walgreens during lunch to get photo's and then back to work to throw it in an envelope along with my expired passport. DONE.
So this yahoo used that as his excuse to take half the day off. Sure... You can take personal time, but ya should have a good reason to do so. I'm thinking his real excuse may sound a whole lot like ishing with an f in front of it.
