ATTACHED TO AN ATTACHE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


All eyes were on the Accountant -- the man known for spreading his confidential client paperwork all over Our Favorite Starbucks -- this morning as word spread that he's replaced his usual armload of loose papers with an actual briefcase. "Get a load of that," said one witness, "Papa's got a brand, new bag!" The briefcase, a stylish, black leather number with loads of compartments and two combination locks, looked like a portable Fort Knox. "Hmmmm," I said, "Perhaps he's under the impression that people have been reading over his shoulder. I guess you can't be too careful these days." For those of you who weren't at 7th and Montana this morning, his papers are now stored neatly in the briefcase. As soon as he writes a check, he seals it in an envelope and files it away in one of the compartments. Outgoing mail has its own slot and his "action pile" is securely stored in a file of its own. There's just one catch: He walked away and left the whole thing unattended this morning while he was in the Men's Room. Moving forward, I guess if anyone wants to know what the Accountant is up to, they'll have to offer him a Bran Muffin ...!

It would have been funny if someone moved all of his stuff to a different table, everything arranged just the same. I'm sure you would have gotten a rise out of him then. 'Course, nobody would fess up, and no one would look guilty.

Guess its cheaper to work at Starbucks then to lease an office.

Glad he is not my accountant.

I agree with Bucko, glad he is not my accountant either with my personal information all over Starbucks and leaving it all unattended while going to the men's room!

I wish people would take the time to enjoy a cup of coffee without bringing their work with them.

What are the odds that this guy doesn't actually have any clients and pretends he's working while in starbucks so as to fulfill some persona in his Walter Mitty mind?
