Getting Up Early Can Knock You For Six

, , , , | Working | October 23, 2018

(I work in an office, usually from 7:30 am until 4:00 pm. It takes me about half an hour to get there by bike. A coworker, who lives further away and has different working hours, will be going out with me tomorrow to pick up work from a client. It will take at least two hours to get there, and before we can take out the work, we have to prepare it first.)

Boss: “Tomorrow, [Coworker] will try to be here as early as possible. But be prepared; you might be finished at [Client’s location] late, like four pm.”

Me: “That’s okay; I anticipated getting home late.”

Boss: “Yes, sorry. I wanted you both to leave here at 7:30 am, but [Coworker] says she might be a bit later, because otherwise she would have to get up at 6:00 am.”

Me: *sceptical* “Six am? Wow. That would be tough, eh?”

Boss: “Yup.”

Me: “I mean, I only get up at six am, like, every day I work.”

Boss: “And I am already on a bus to get here by six am.”

Me: “Pity her.”

Boss: “Yes. Pity her.”
