In a fascinating tale of cunning, our protagonist, Glen, takes on a night janitor job with a quirky rule: no purchasing work items. So he ingeniously smuggles in Windex to clean the office windows, triggering chaos as managers try to find the culprit. A thrilling and successful adventure unfolds!
The Unlikely Night Janitor
Glen found himself in a monetary bind some months ago. Seeking a quick cash injection, he opted for a night shift job, taking on a janitorial role.
His new employer, however, had an odd policy. Employees were forbidden from purchasing any work-related items; everything had to come through the corporation’s purchasing department.
Whether it was a high-end server or a $4 bottle of Windex, you needed to requisition it.
Navigating Corporate Hurdles
But it wasn’t you, per se, who made the requisition. You had to report your needs to your manager, who then carried out the requisition process.
Glen inquired about the excessive protocol, only to receive a vague response regarding liability. Deciding it was best not to question authority, he carried on with his tasks.
The Missing Windex
Some weeks into the job, Glen found himself out of Windex. He notified his manager, expecting to receive more soon.
A Waiting Game
A week later, the Windex hadn’t arrived. He reminded his manager, who had admittedly forgotten, promised to attend to it promptly.
Another week, still no Windex. Another reminder met with a lecture about the manager’s busy schedule and his inability to prioritize a trivial bottle of window cleaner.
Offering to purchase it himself, Glen was met with a stern gaze, as if he’d suggested committing corporate treason.
Tiptoeing Around Rules
Choosing not to argue the absurdity of the situation, he nodded in agreement, promising patience. Yet, the windows and mirrors were suffering, and so was Glen’s reputation. Regular water did little to rectify the situation.
The Plot Thickens
Then, an idea sprang to life in Glen’s mind. A mischievous yet brilliant idea.
The Windex Heist
He unsuspectedly purchased a bottle of Windex and brought it to work in his lunchbox. A couple of hours later, the facility’s glass was sparkling like never before.
To avoid suspicion, he thanked his manager for ordering the Windex, triggering a reaction akin to someone being thanked for providing inappropriate material.
The manager, incensed, sought the individual responsible for the Windex infiltration.
A Confused Culprit
Playing innocent, Glen feigned ignorance, suggesting that anyone tired of dirty windows could have brought it in.
The Manager’s Mission
The manager was now on a mission to find the Windex smuggler. He and two other managers and a security officer scoured security footage in search of the culprit.
Despite their previous resistance to spending time on a mere $4 cleaner, they were now fully committed to the cause.
A Successful Scheme
Ultimately, they couldn’t find who had smuggled in the Windex, and Glen’s supply remained untouched. Thus, he deemed his plan an absolute success.
