Being Bueller: How to Embrace Your Inner Ferris and Take a Day Off…Without Getting Caught

Being Bueller: How to Embrace Your Inner Ferris and Take a Day Off…Without Getting Caught

I have a confession: I’ve fired people.  Lots and lots of people.  Hundreds.  You see, in my pre-writing life, I had a job supervising employees and, yes, sometimes sacking them.  It was never something I enjoyed doing.

Employee absences are on the rise with 40% of workers calling out of work when they aren’t sick. That number was up from 36% the year before.  I get it.  With work stresses and life pressures, sometimes you need a break. A day off. And no one knew this better than Ferris Bueller, the serendipitous master of playing hooky.  Ferris skipped out of school nine times in a single semester. For his final day off, he brought along his friend, Cameron, and girlfriend, Sloane. Surviving until graduation with that severe a case of senioritis should be impressive to everyone.

Musicals for Guys Who Hate Musicals

Musicals for Guys Who Hate Musicals

I’ve never enjoyed musicals. In fact, if I’m ever captured by enemy forces, a marathon of film musicals would be more effective at getting me to talk than waterboarding. I’m passionate about films. I love music. Common sense says that I’d love a combination of the two.

It may be a stereotype, but I’ve found that that most men just don’t like musicals. Blame societal pressures or gender conventions, but much like multi-level marketing companies, musicals just don’t seem to be our thing. As someone who possesses both X and Y chromosomes, I think I can speak for most men as to why: we favor logic over emotion.
