He cut our weekly Business Intelligence staff meeting short because he’s tired today. And why is he tired? Because it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Boss-across spent all day Saturday and Sunday stringing Christmas lights around fifteen pine trees in his front yard. As a final touch, he installed a sensor that will automatically turn on the lights when the sun goes down.
At first, everything went as planned: it got dark, and the lights came on. Hundreds of bright, white lights that tricked the sensor into a false sense of daylight, causing it to turn off the lights. And immediately it was dark again, so the trusty sensor turned the lights back on. And off. And on.
Back to the staff meeting. Boss-across-the-hall told us that our group is going to test the company’s instant messaging software:
Becky: I am not putting IM on my computer unless I have to.
Boss-across: You have to.
Boss-across: Meeting over. I’m very tired from all of the Christmas lights.
