“… but then again, PowerPoint has never let me down in the past,” your boss says. “It’s just, uh-uh-uh, so darn consistent.”

You know Prezi is infinitely superior to PowerPoint, but that doesn’t matter at the moment. All you want is for your boss to leave your cube without him seeing your screen.

“If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.”

“Too true,” he agrees.

Luckily for you, and probably more luckily for Debby, your boss saunters away without, apparently, having read the message.

You look up at the clock. Still three more hours to go.

As you reach for the stress ball on your desk, you see an email come in from your boss. It’s addressed to the entire office:

I thought I made it abundantly clear that non-work-related websites aren’t to be used during working hours. I just came away from a conversation with an employee who didn’t even bother to minimize his dating profile and chat windows while we were talking.

To avoid any further confusion, IT will block all such sites going forward.

You slowly look up from the email.

Everyone in your department is staring at you. They all saw you chatting with your boss mere seconds ago.

And now they all hate you.

Even more than before.
