Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XXIII

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:44 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Im sorry,
Im so sorry,
      I hastened to say.
Im not angry with you;
Im just tired of looking
here, there, and everywhere.
Please accept my apology.
Of course,
      she replied,
I know how you feel.
They can be pretty upsetting,
cant they?
Have a seat
and Ill call
Human Resources
and see if they
can help you,
OK?
What could I say?
At this point
      I was about ready to give up.
Sure, I sighed
      as I dropped into
      a big leather chair.
