Identifying wasted time
TO: ALL PERSONNEL
It has come to our attention recently that many of you have been turning in timesheets that specify large amounts
of “Miscellaneous Unproductive Time” (Code 5309). However, we need to know exactly what you are doing during your unproductive time.
Attached below is a sheet specifying a tentative extended job code list based on our observations of employee activities.
The list will allow you to specify with a fair amount of precision what you are doing during your unproductive time.
Please begin using this job-code list immediately and let us know about any difficulties you encounter.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
For thirty years, Johnson had arrived at work at 9A.M. on the dot. He had never missed a day and was never late.
Consequently, when on one particular day 9 A.M. passed without Johnson’s arrival, it caused a sensation. All work
ceased, and the boss himself, looking at his watch and muttering, came out into the corridor.
Finally, precisely at ten, Johnson showed up, clothes dusty and torn, his face scratched and bruised, his glasses bent.
He limped painfully to the time clock, punched in, and said, aware that all eyes were upon him, “I tripped and rolled
down two flights of stairs in the subway. Nearly killed myself.”
And the boss said, “And to roll down two flights of stairs took you a whole hour?” 😳😳😳
Tuesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“I’m placing you under arrest for the future murder of Sarah Marks and Donald Dubin, that was
to take place today, Apr. 22nd, at 0800 hours and four minutes.”
Answer: Minority Report!
There are no murders in the year 2054, not because people are any less violent, but because the precogs see the murders before they occur and the arrests are made in advance of the actual killings. It seems a perfect system, until Detective John Anderton finds that he is named as a possible future murderer, and he refuses to accept arrest without finding out why.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….
Today little Frederick and his mother visited a school and a family. While they were there, they saw a band, checked out the litter, and noticed a sleuth standing nearby. Later that day, they watched an army and a troop for quite a while, and noticed they were standing beside a battery. As they were leaving to go home that day, Frederick and his mother saw a party just near the den and were indeed very happy.
