Gerry was having a bad day. He had been up since 6am, though it felt like he'd never slept - a fault with his alarm clock meant that it went off every 15 minutes from 1.45am onwards! His day continued badly: his toast was burnt, and there was no strawberry jam left and he was also out of Earl Grey tea.
At work, three meetings came one after the other. That was the danger of being the manager of thirty-two staff. The first meeting was with the senior marketing manager who gave a dull presentation on something or other, whilst the accounts manager who he saw next gave a financial projection for the next six months - boring Gerry to tears in the process.
Gerry's final meeting was with his boss, Malcolm, who wanted to know why three team members had left the company in the last two months and why sick days were up 12% this year. WIth a team building day in the Lake District just one week away, Gerry assured his boss that things would improve soon. He stopped short of espousing his theory that Malcolm's strict targets were the cause of lower morale in the team and the consequences he had picked up on.
When Gerry got home at 7.15pm, the answerphone was flashing with five messages, and he also realised that he'd left his mobile phone in the office. After returning his calls, Gerry was finally able to relax for the evening. He sat down to watch a soap opera on TV with a large glass of orange juice and his favourite dinner, only for there to be a power cut. What a day!
