If your laptop, Smartphone or necktie never takes a day off, then you’re probably a work-a-holic. July 5th happens to be Work-a-Holic Day, a great opportunity to celebrate this breed of round-the-clock employees who don’t understand the meaning of vacation.

It’s $7.99 at OfficePlayground.com and includes a tiny umbrella and beach chair resting on soft, white sand. Just let them know they still won’t get a tan as long as they stay under those fluorescent lights.
