Man leaving office early to watch football that isn't on until 7pm

A MAN has announced he will be leaving the office at lunchtime to watch the game, even though it begins at 7pm. 

Tom Logan informed his boss that he will be going home at 12.30pm ‘for the match’, which she accepted until realising it would not begin for a further six hours. 

Line manager Helen Archer said: “He does this every four years and I was like ‘whatever’ until I realised that this time it’s practically in Europe and on at a perfectly normal time. 

“You don’t get to bugger off early just because it’s England. That’s not a thing.  And he only lives five minutes away. He’s always home in time for Pointless.” 

Logan said: “I’ve only come in at all as a favour. Legally you don’t have to when there’s an England game. 

“Nobody’s going to object if I have a beer at my desk, are they? It’s almost half-eleven after all.” 

He added: “I don’t even like football.”

Which Greek god are you? 

YOU know which Friends character, zoo animal and type of biscuit you are, but what Greek god are you? You might as well find out.

– Do you take long baths, drink lots of water, enjoy swimming and always find yourself cheering on the gladiator with a net and trident? Then you are POSEIDON, god of the sea, ruler of seven-tenths of the globe. Act accordingly. 

– Are you always to be found in Wetherspoons pissed up, singing and chatting up women despite your incredibly hairy legs and goaty reek? Then you are PAN, and you are more successful with the ladies than you would expect. 

– Is your life a series of bullshit tasks, in at least one case literally, given to you by your superiors who do nothing but fuck around on clouds drinking wine and messing around with people as a game? You are HERCULES, and it sucks. 

– Are you a bicycle courier with wings tattooed on your ankles, tiny genitals and a really stupid hat? Then you are HERMES, messenger of the Gods, necessary to the plot but not exciting. 

– Are you continually having affairs with women in the guise of a white bull, a golden shower of rain or a network solutions salesman living in Wigan? You are ZEUS, and should honestly try to keep it in your pants sometimes. 

– Do you wield an enchanted hammer, control the thunder and rain, protect Midgard and have an evil half-brother called Loki? You are THOR, and should fuck off back to your own pantheon.
