Home sweet home

Office's life

This morning I had to call a public office which is open only between 10 to 12, yes just two hours a day. The secretary who I talked to said that his boss is at a union meeting until 12, at least, I replied that the office closed at exactly that time, and so she told me to try all the same after that because (perhaps, naturally) someone will answer, because the other employees are either sick (2 over 4, like in the Middle Ages during the Plague) or are working on another case (1 over 4, like in Ussr). What could I say then? I just thank her for her time and hung up. Home sweet home…
