Cutting Edge

Yesterday, 9:00 am Workforce Service Talk at the Post office:

         Management:  "Just to let you guys know, they've implemented an updated tracking system for everything we scan: express mail, certified, registered, everything. It's cutting edge, and at the end of the day the computer will tell us if anyone has missed scanning a piece out there. We'll get a picture of the item in question, as well as a scan log so we'll know exactly which route it was scanned to in the office. We'll know where every piece goes, all the time, so any missed scans will show up immediately. You guys have been doing a terrific job at hitting all the delivery scans, we just need you to keep up the good work and not trip any bells with this new tracking system."

Today, 8:30 am, same office:

Boss is walking about looking at a piece of paper on which he has a lengthy number scrawled in pencil.
Boss: "Were you here yesterday?"
Me: "Yes."
Boss: "Did you have an express piece yesterday?"
Me: "Nope."
Boss: "Okay, thanks."
Boss moves to the rack next to mine. 
Boss: "Were you here yesterday?"
My Coworker: "Yeah."
Boss: "Did you have this express piece?"
My Coworker: "No."
Boss moves on to the next rack in line, and then the next, carrying his paper and asking his questions.
Coworker 1: "I like their new tracking system."
Coworker 2: "Yeah. Cutting edge."
Coworker 1: "Impressive."

I was too busy laughing to join in the conversation.

Talk to you later!
