Today’s excuse

At work on Monday I was told to be in early Tuesday for an 8am meeting with – get this – a graphic designer. I told them no chance. There is absolutely no way you would ever see a graphic designer in at 8 in the morning. It’s not natural. They are genetically incapable of being anywhere that early.

So I got in early, partly because I try to be punctual, but mostly because I wanted to see if he’d turn up. At 8:10, the phone rang. It had to be him. We waited with bated breath to hear what today’s excuse would be (see the list of graphic designer excuses
from March).

"Stuck in traffic".

He turned up at 8:30.
