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.
