Fred Halsted was looking for a new job, but no matter how hard he tried his reputation as somewhat of a slacker always seemed to catch up with him.
One day he was in his office when the phone rang. “I have an unusual question for you,” the caller said. “I’m considering Fred Halsted for a job. Do you know him?
“Yes, in fact I do,” responded Fred.
“Tell me,” said the caller, “is he consistent with his work? Does he show up on time? Does he reliably come to work?”
“I can tell you this,” said Fred, “Never once have I been here that he hasn’t.”
