He did not know how tired he was until that first night.
Imagine your boss calling you into his office not to reprimand you about your work. Nope. Jason was called into a meeting by his boss because he had refused to take his vacation days. His excuse was pretty good. Jason was working on an important project and did not want to stop with the momentum he had. But, his boss did not want to hear any of it and ordered Jason to take time off from work. He was not allowed to come back to the office for another three weeks. This did not sink well with Jason, but he had no option but to comply with the orders. He went home that evening and thought hard about what to do. It was winter up north, and boy, was it freezing. Jason recalled a friend inviting him to spend some time in San Francisco whenever he could get away. Jason gave his friend a call and arranged to fly out as soon as he could. His friend from college was excited to hear he was going to visit him. Jason booked a flight and flew to California two days later. His friend was at the airport to pick him up. They got to his place, and Jason started to feel relaxed. He did not know how tired he was until that first night. Jason slept until late the following day after his friend gave him marijuana gummy to chew. He told him there was a dispensary down the road from the house, which they would visit later when he was rested. They went out for dinner that evening, and Jason knew his boss had been right to order him to take time off.
