I have not put in so much thought in any application as I have in this. And I can't even bill for it.
It's my leave application. I need a week to attend a wedding, which is a code word in this place for a job interview. What about a dentist's appointment-and then build on that, with the tooth getting screwed and all?
What about a dentist's wedding?
Let me ask for a month's leave. He will get such a heart attack, he will grant me five days at least. Which is all I want anyway.

I find the HAPPY lawyer part pretty amusing, in an innocent way.

Thanks, a*
Jhantu, psychology is everything.
Guy Next Door, interviews take 5 days because they test culture. It takes 4 days for nails to grow out-so the suspense for HR is: will he or will he not get a manicure on the last day?

Back when i was in the PR and advertising business,the code for going to an interview was "i am stepping out to go to the bank". In those days(1998-1999, ATM transactions weren't as rampant as there are now)it meant going to the crowded place, standing next to a 'son-of-the-soil' with bad BO and clutch on to a brass or copper token so hard that you get the bank's seal impression on your palm and took atleast 40 mins.

Soon, everyone across the board used this weasel tactic(weasel tactics as stated by Dilbert are meant to confuse your enemies).

This code was killed later when the CEO of the agency 'one fine day decided to go the bank' and the cheek of the guy, he said this in the monday morning internal meeting. We hear a week later, his intentions to move on to a lifestyle retial company.
