Times Square, Part 3: Broken Clocks
Why do buildings have clocks? Or I suppose the better question is: why don’t buildings have clocks anymore?
Is it possible that the public keeping of time was abandoned so that workers never know when to leave the office?!
My boss is mad. He says, “If Nick can’t have it done by 5:00, he might as well not come back on Monday. But I don’t know what he means because Nick only works on Tuesdays and Thursdays and sometimes on Fridays between 12:00 and 4:00 but only if he hasn’t worked more than 20 hours earlier in the week. Nick never works on Mondays.“
