Me: Is he asleep?
Boss: I don’t think so.
Me: Bang on the desk as a test.
Boss: No , you do it.
Me: I cant.
Me: Should we continue with our presentation?
Boss: This stuff can’t be that boring can it?
Me: He did say that he was up all night doing his radio show.
I bang on the desk, and make a little whooping sound.
Boss: Why did you whoop?
Me: I saw Kramer do it on Seinfeld once.
Me: Does it count if he signs the contract while he is asleep?
Boss: I don’t think there is any precedent.
Boss: Put the pen in his hand, and see if he scribbles on the contract.
Me: Would you let that count?
Me: I really don’t think he’s sleeping.
Boss: He has to be, he would have heard everything we are talking about.
Me: I hope he is asleep.
Attorney: How long is the contract for?
Me: Uhh. Umm. We ask for a 3 year agreement.
Attorney appears to close his eyes again..
I wait for a response, but it seems as if I am not going to get one. I start back peddling.
Me: We can do a 2 year agreement.
Silence for 45 seconds.
Me: A 1 year agreement?
Silence for 30 seconds.
Attorney picks up the pen and signs the agreement.
Me: Ok, thanks attorney 348. I will send you the login information early next week.
I get out of there as fast as I could, it felt as if I just robbed a bank.
I look at the agreement, and then look at my boss.
Me: He signed it in the middle of the page, is that ok?
Boss: That’s going to be a tough one, ill see what I can do. Just go back and have him sign it in the correct spot.
Me: Yeah… I don’t think he really was with us. Let’s take our chances with order entry.
Boss: What else do you have for me today?
Me: You like Cats?
