Workers around the world marveled yesterday at the speed at which Monday came and went.
“It flew by,” reported a senior support staff person. “One minute it was 8:00 and the next minute it was lunch time!”
While those at the lunch table agreed that a day like Monday couldn’t go fast enough, they were also in agreement that there just weren’t enough hours in the day, anyway.
“It’s a contradiction, innit?” stated one over-worked admin. “I mean, on the one hand, we need more hours; and on the other hand, even if there were more hours, there still wouldn’t be enough hours! I mean, we would just end up working more hours! Right? Am I right?”
She then began talking about time-clock punching, labor unions, and the rise of the proletariat, after which she disappeared. She was found much later in the bathroom, where sources report she was found sitting on the toilet tank with her feet up off the ground, hoping no one would find her.
Those closest to the above-quoted admin remarked that she’d been talking like that for quite a while now. Concerns for her mental health are the frequent topic of water-cooler/copier conversation and are often both speculative and hilarious.
An intervention for her is planned for the next time anyone has open space on their calendar.
