Tom had this problem of getting up late
in the morning and was always late for work. His boss
was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't
do something about it. So Tom went to his doctor who gave
him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed.
Tom slept well and in fact beat the alarm in the morning
by almost two hours. He had a leisurely breakfast and
drove cheerfully to work.
"Boss", he said, " The pill actually worked!"
"That's all fine" said the boss, " But
where were you yesterday?"
