i found this while out and about in journal land and thought it was good for a few laughs (at our house, we laughed till we cried!!) i have no shame, i've stolen it directly from A Ticket To Ride (is stealing ok if you confess? hehe)
A boss concerned with his best worker not showing up for work, decides to give him a call.
