I want to start by emphasizing the fact that I really tried. But look, it was a nice day and I kind of wanted to go for a ride on my motorcycle. I was driving along, and there was this really nice place along the side of the road, so I stopped and got a hamburger, and maybe a couple beers. I really wanted to do that thing that you wanted me to do, honestly. I mean, it wasn’t my fault that the hamburger place was there, right?
So then I got back to the office, and it was still nice out but I was really trying to do that one thing. But you see, the problem was that there was a trash can at the end of my desk, and I was really trying to focus but the trashcan kept distracting me. So I wound up little balls fo paper, and I aimed them at the trashcan. Some of them hit, but some of them didn’t. The point is that I was really trying to do that one thing that you wanted. I’m not responsible for the trashcan being next to my desk, right?
Well, it was still really nice out and I looked out the window. I really wanted to go ride my motorcycle again, but I held myself back. Instead I walked down to the cafeteria, and got a Pepsi.
The thing about Pepsi’s is they always make me sleepy. So I was sitting there and my desk just sort of nodding and drowsing, and I couldn’t focus on my work at all, I was so tired. But hey, it’s not my fault that Pepsi makes me tired, right?
Well, when all of that was over I looked at the clock, and wouldn’t you know it was time to go home already? I’m really sorry that I didn’t complete that one thing that you wanted me to do. I tried so hard all day, but it wasn’t my fault that the day went by so fast, right?
