168.Going out of Town
Whenever the boss was out of the office, everyone took it easy!
They stopped trying to outdo themselves, fighting against each other,
and going over and above the demands of duty!
That's why the boss was always so reluctant to leave.
One time, however, when he had to go out of town on business for several weeks, he knew that it was out of the question for him to allow his whole office to do nothing while he was gone!
And so he went out of his way to fight the problem; he hired a replacement, Boss number 2!
Boss number 2 was outrageously expensive! But the boss thought it was worth it!
The staff thought it was ridiculous!
But when the boss was gone, Boss number 2 changed their outlook on everything-he was even more demanding than the normal boss!
But he was out of tune with how to run the business
and the normal boss found that he wasn't out of the woods with this replacement boss either!
When he returned he found that several clients had left, project costs exceeded and key staff fired!
The company was in a mess out-and-out!
Everyone reported that Boss number 2 was out of touch with everything, and out of this world in his expectations!
The whole office would have to start all over again in some areas of their business!
The boss decided then and there that he was over and done with going out of town!
The staff moaned!
