( 8:51 AM ) teahouse
All this month I've been working for Absent-Minded Partner.
You know who he is. Every firm has one.
He's the one who always loses all of the papers I give him to review. So I have to prepare multiple copies so I can keep giving them to him over and over again.
He's the one who never has a pen handy, because it's stuck behind his ear and he's forgotten where he put it.
He's the one who's really old and never learned how to use a computer, so his secretary has to check his email for him, and pick up his dry cleaning and pay his credit card bill for him.
He's the one who always has a cup of coffee with him when he stops by my office, 3-4 times a week. But after sitting there for half an hour, he gets up to leave and forgets the cup.
So then a week later, I smell something gross, and discover that there are 3-4 old, dried-up and moldy cups of coffee sitting on the top of my bookshelf. Ugh!
