My boss just called in sick and LEFT ME IN CHARGE!  Mwahahahaha!  :devil:

The guys I work with are so screwed!

If you were left in this postion of "Ultimate authority" (bear in mind I have no actual authority - but I can fantasize!) what would you do?

I was actually thinking more along the lines of turning into a petty dictator and totally abusing my great cosmic powers!!!

edit: Besides except for the karaoke thing, that pretty much sounds like a normal day around here!

Have one of the workers under you drive to some party store or something, and buy cheesey plastic swords and armor for everyone to put on, then go pillage the office building next door. Burn their staplers and poison their coffee supply! Lay waste to corporate America!

Orrrr...You could do what we did at my work one day. The boss called in sick and basically said "Good luck, don't kill each other", and we had a window of time where no clients were scheduled to come in, so my coworkers and I just bought sandwiches for lunch, and water-guns, and we chased each other around the office like morons. Point being, water-guns make everything that much more fun.

Well if you're talking about being a dictator...... I'd make everyone else answer the phone, wash my car, go fetch me lunch, clean the bathroom, tolerate me bringing my dog to the office, no matter how obnoxious she gets. Basically make them do all that I do in addition to their own jobs.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
