When he saw the first visitor to hisoffice come through the door, he immediately picked up his phoneand spoke into it," I am sorry, but my workload is so tremendousthat I am not going to be able to look into your problem for atleast a month. I shall have to get back to you then." He then turnedto the man who had just walked in, and said, "Now, what can I do foryou?" "Nothing," replied the man. "I am here to hook up your phone."
