Dave was working. He was at his desk. He was calling and emailing. He was focused. He had got his coffee from the coffee machine. He had walked from the machine back to his desk. He pointed at his friend along the way. He had sat down at his desk and after about 5 minutes he got his mind back into the “flow” of work.
It was 2:30PM in the afternoon. It was a slower part of the day. Some of his fellow employees were working frantically to try to improve their numbers in order to hit their metric with the sole and only goal of not being harassed or pointed out by their manager. You would think an organization would be more focused on meaningful work but alas the organization known as ComboTech was only truly interested in the appearance of productivity.
The Sales Director made an appearance. He had left his office and was moving around. People looked at him but made sure to look at their screens and give the appearance that they were working very hard. They knew deep inside that he thought they were “lazy” and that the company was not doing well due to their laziness (it could not be a lack of leadership).
People were standing up from their cubes and moving towards the coffee machine area. Dave was a little suspicious but he had seen cookies earlier.
As his coworkers stood up, he glanced at them and they also looked at him. There was nervousness in the air. The company morale was down.
Dave walked next to his friend Jeff.
As the workforce moved towards the cookies the Sales Director said “Everybody grab a cookie.” His words were always kind of slurred for some odd reason.
Dave moved close to Jeff and whispered, “It was nice knowing you. I guess this is the end for all of us.”
Jeff smiled and looked back at Dave, “See you on the unemployment line.”
The Sales Director looked around, “Alright everybody got a cookie? Okay. Into this room.”
The workforce moved as one, unsure if it would be their demise.
