Being the new guy

"Have you seen the new guy? He’s early enough to actually be on time."

"Yeah, and his daily update emails are something else. Detailed accounts of everything he's achieved."

"And those weekly milestones he sets for himself, then meets them!"

"Can you imagine if this catches on? They might start thinking that actual productivity is the norm around here."

"He's setting a dangerous precedent. First, it's 'being proactive,' next we're all supposed to be 'innovating' and 'pushing the envelope.' I don't even know where the envelope is."

"The worst part is, this might actually mean we have to start working. Like, really working, not just pretending until it's 5 PM."

"The idea of putting in effort every day... I didn't sign up for that."
