Back in the time when we were in school or college, taking a leave wasn’t much of a headache. While fever, family gathering and loose motion were the most common excuses, many of us would simply write ‘unavoidable circumstances’ to avoid further conversation.
However, shit got real when we stepped into our work lives. While asking for an off day became a ‘herculean task’ itself, one should also be ready with a logical reason to cushion the demand. But here we have a case where a police constable crossed all limits of reasoning and came up with the most unusual one you will ever here!
According to NDTV, Som Singh, a police constable in the Mahoba town police station, Uttar Pradesh, applied for a 30-day leave to “expand his family.” No kidding!
And that’s not all. He not only got what he had asked for but also managed to get some extra time off.
Reportedly, he was granted a 45-day leave with effect from June 23 by the inspector.
But this is not the first time we are coming across weird ways of taking leaves. Remember the incident of a Pakistani boy trying to get his school leave sanctioned by singing in front of the headmaster? While that one can be termed as cute, this one was outright hilarious!
