An Exciting Breakthrough (maybe, maybe not) in Survival

I left my desk to take a brief stroll, stretching my legs and resting my mind, when I habitually held the door open for someone walking behind me.

“Thank you,” she said. “That was very courteous of you.”

I paused. “Courtesy had nothing to do with it. I’m just trying to stay awake from my desk for as long as possible.”

Thus, a new rule to surviving the corporate world emerged: “Rule #23: Be courteous.”
