As my work life is once again ruled by the time clock machine, I've had to get used to clocking in and out throughout the day. I was preparing to check in from lunch today when one of my office mates that sits behind me beat me to the machine.
I heard that all too familiar punch in the machine as it checked his card and I waited patiently behind him. I thought he would move on after clocking in but he stood his ground directly in front of the time clock. I would've politely said "pardon me" or "excuse me" but I quickly changed my mind and decided to wait. Apparently he didn't realize there was a line behind him and I thought I'd just wait and observe the moment. He just stood there eyeing his card. I was thinking to myself, "What is he doing?" Calculating his hours worked from all his punches?!
Ya right! LOL!
