Delegation meets inactive listening and a busy schedule

In a not-so-distant future:

Employee: Remember the plague of locusts I unleashed last month?

Manager (preparing to leave his chair) : Not really, but what's up?

Employee: Our customers are very upset; they are picketing at the main entrance.

Manager (fiddling with papers on his desk) : They need to check that gate, it has been acting up...

Employee: They snatched the project manager from his car while he was swiping his badge.

Manager (joyful after finding the form he was looking for) : I need to replace my badge...

Employee: They torched his laptop...and the car.

Manager: Well, let me know how it turns out, gotta run to my next meeting.
