The story of a day in the life of an unsuccessful office worker

8:59am Ted Grundy’s Solution

I have not made a great impression. 

“Look I’m very sorry I’m late. It won’t happen again.” 

“We’ll, Mr. Robertson. To tell you the truth, I’m a little concerned.” Ted Grundy’s voice now assumes a tinge of seriousness, but maintains his sarcastic humor.   

“In this company, we take the health of our employees very seriously. Now it appears that the requirement to arrive at the office and start work at eight thirty is having an adverse effect on your sleeping patterns.  

As managing director and owner of this company, I feel that it’s my responsibility to help you through this problem. Here’s my solution.  

If this happens again, you needn’t bother coming to work at all. Just keep sleeping until your body tells you it’s time to wake up. Even then, you need not bother coming to work. And then you can sleep in the next day and the day after that, and every day after that.  

That way, we can be sure that our requirements in terms of starting times do not adversely affect your sleeping patterns or any other aspect of your health in any way.” 

“Ok, I understand.”. In other words, I’ll be fired if I’m late again.  

He is not happy with me now. How will he feel when he finds out that I have not prepared the Cost Analysis report for this meeting? 

I’m dead.
