“‘The later I get here, the quicker this ends’ isn’t the right answer for ‘why are you late?’”

Some employees believe that the later they arrive to work, the sooner it’s over. “My boss asked my why I was always late for work. I’m like, ‘Cause it make the day go faster. The later I get here, the quicker this ends’” was posted on Twitter on December 8, 2010.
 
“My Boss sent me back home. Apparently, ‘the later I get here, the quicker this ends’ isn’t the right answer for ‘why are you late?’” was posted on Twitter by Ororo Munroe‏ on July 25, 2012. This form of the saying became popular.
   
The work joke has been printed on many images.
