The best thing an employee could ever wish for is here: a permission slip to get out of work.
Who wrote and signed this delightful document? The head coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team, Jurgen Klinsmann.
Since USA’s match against Germany will air during the workday on Thursday, June 26, Klinsmann created the note to encourage more Americans to watch the match. Ideally, all you have to do is pen your name and signature in the designated places, and hand it to your boss as you set out for the nearest television set.
“I understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace but I can assure you that it is for an important cause,” Klinsmann writes in the note. He also encourages managers to take a break from work to watch the match themselves.
