“Jenkins!” Old Man Thompson shouted from behind his closed office door.
Jenkins sighed, another task was to be barked at him. It was not that Jenkins took issue with the work or extra assignments, but the limited people skills of his boss were taking a toll. Jenkins dutifully went into the plainly configured office, took a new task and returned to his desk.
“How do you deal with that?” Beth from accounting asked. She was waiting for Jenkins with coffee in hand.
“Thanks for the coffee,” Jenkins said, “and I’ve found some ways to make the work bearable.”
“Like what?” Beth prompted.
“Well, for one, every report I type up if you read the first letter of every line it spells ‘Give Jenkins a Ten Thousand Dollar Raise.’ It takes some time, but I do think it is having an effect.” Jenkins explained. He smiled ever so slightly, quite pleased with this tactic.
“That sounds like an incredible amount of effort to put into something so subliminal,” Beth was less impressed.
“I’m here on weekends and gave up weeknight bowling, but I’m pretty good with it,” Jenkins took a sip of his coffee.
