Talking Dictionary565. Clock Me Out, Please


565. Bonnie said, "Clyde, would you do me a favor, please? I have to take my son to the emergency room. He just called me from home. He's got a really bad stomachache. I only have one more hour to work, but I can't afford to lose even one hour. Nobody will notice that I'm leaving early. Could you please clock me out at 5 p.m.?" Clyde said, "Are you sure nobody will notice? I don't want to get into trouble." Bonnie assured him. He said okay. She thanked him. The next morning, Cher called Clyde into her office. She said, "What were you thinking? You know you can't clock someone else out. I'm docking you and Bonnie a day's pay each." At lunchtime, Bonnie said, "Clyde, I'm so sorry! I promise I'll pay you back." Clyde said, "Forget it. It was right to help you, but it was also wrong." 2.2
