If you want to meet with Mr. Linden at Parfitt Paper, you've got to go through Shirley Gingell. She's been the iron-eyed receptionist of the President's office for 23 years now. Employees with the company for more than twenty years are entitled to four weeks paid vacation each year. When she was on vacation last month, her replacement severely over-watered the ficus plant at the side of her desk. But does Shirley care about the dying ficus? She hasn't noticed, because Shirley got her groove back on this vacation, if you get my drift, and her pulse is still set to a far-off time zone.
