Late at the Office
time left 4 : 00
Mary could always be trusted on to be late for work.
Her office supervisor had a special attendance book and in it she painted a line at quarter past nine.
Anyone who arrived after that timing had to sign below the line and was therefore late.
Ms Primshaw checked the book at the end of each month and without failing Mary's signature was always below the line.
In desolation Ms Primshaw hoped she would be able to make one last effort to help Mary.
She told Mary that her lateness was now outside a joke and she had to try very hard to get up earlier.
As her very last chance to keep her job Mary had to be on time for at last one day.
But it didn't function at all because again and again Mary found herself signing below the famous line.
Then there happened what can only be depicted as a miracle because she arrived at the office at nine.
There was however one small matter that Mary had overseen the day she was early because the office was shut as it was Sunday.
