This idea would be for a business to sell extra days of vacation for the price of hiring a temp for the time (and a little extra fee so it pays for the company). Such a thing would be a great gift for your colleagues. Maybe there should be a certain minimum number of days you could buy because it could
be hard to hire a replacement for just one day.
Almost identical idea [hippo, Oct 04 2004]
||"Ah Mr Saruman, the heart surgeon you
were going to see has a 'Get out of
work' card for today - I'm the temp.
Don't worry though, I'm sure I can pick
it up as I go along..."
||OK, so it would not work for ALL jobs...
||[hippo]: Oh, I see. Sorry for not having searched thoroughly. Except for the "gift certificate" angle, it really *is* practically the same idea. Let's see if I'll delete this.
||Actually, if you rename the idea to "Get out of work GIFT card", the fact that it's bought for coworkers could make it worthy of standing on its own.
