It's Friday at the office. Better known as "pay day." A day when you pay the mortgage or rent, get your groceries, catch up on bills. The clock ticks and still no check. Something must be wrong and it's almost time to leave. Wait. . . . . here comes the boss. The look on her face says something isn't right.
"I'm sorry everyone. We don't have checks for you this week. Someone has stolen them," she says.
"What? How can that be? We've worked for two weeks to get that money! It's ours and we're owed it! We have bills to pay and groceries to buy."
"Oh well," she says. "Just keep working and maybe we can pay you next week. In the meantime, keep up the good work."
