The Project

He stood by the desk, slouched over with a bad look on his face.  He looked like he wanted to be anywhere else.  Another man approached him and said, “Tom, you look like someone stole your car, what’s up buddy?”

Tom said, “It’s this project.  I just can’t get excited about it at all.  It is just not my cup of tea.”

The man said, “Being apathetic about it isn’t going to make it go any better.  You should just grin and bare it.  It will all be done by next week.”

Tom sighed and said, “You’re right, thanks Fred.”
