Garbage Trucks and Doughnuts

I was late today. I've been late everyday for the last year and a half.

Last week my manager put a new policy in place; If you're late you bring doughnuts.

This was fine with me, I was usually only late because of the apathy of others towards my lateness. Now that there is a penalty I can motivate myself to show up to work on time. I blame the environment I work in, I'm very punctual otherwise.

Monday through Thursday I managed to make it in on time as I watched with great pleasure as my manager faulted out Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday the other guy in my department was late!

Today I left a little late but I figured I could take the back way and shave off the time by driving ridiculously fast on poorly maintained roads. Everything was going according to plan until I ended up behind one of those garbage trucks that dumps off garbage bins at construction sites. Every hill was like Everest and every turn was taken with the caution of a turn in a game of Russian Roulette.

I pulled in at 8:07 and there was already a note on my monitor. I was a little pissed because when they were late it was in the half hour range. But late is late so doughnuts for everyone!

I think I'm just going to start coming in a half hour early everyday.
