I get to the office and sit down at my desk.  I share a cubicle with another employee, Jim, but he only works in the afternoons so we don’t usually get in each other’s way too much.  I boot up my computer and look at my agenda for today.  I had about 30 new emails in my inbox but I decide not to read them right away.  There were some new inter-office paperwork in my inbox too, but I decide to look at them a little later.  First, I wanted to start in on a report that I had to finish today.  I had a conference call at the end of the day with the head office, but I had most of the day to get it done.

Before long, it was the lunch hour.  I didn’t pack a lunch so I ask my supervisor if she wanted to have lunch together.  We head down the street to a sit-down restaurant.  The hostess shows us to a table in the back of the restaurant.  The waiter arrives a few minutes later and we order entrees, no appetizers, since we need to get back by 1:00.  The waiter was very busy so I had to wave him down to get the check.  He brought the bill, and my supervisor and I split the check.  We walk back to the office and I get back to work.  Just four more hours until quitting time!
