“I’ve got to stay home. I have a case of anal blindness…” (work joke)

A joke has an employee calling a boss and explaining that he/she is not feeling well and suffers from “anal blindness.” What is anal blindness? “I can’t see my ass/arse coming to work today,” the employee explains.

The “anal blindness” joke has been cited in print since at least 2004. “Anal blindness” was entered in the Urban Dictionary in 2008.

He’s got “short man’s complex” along with “anal blindness”, another words, he can’t see his ass going to work
