Before the start of each day, you must ensure you have all necessary supplies and equipment.

Your computer has been rigged so that a small icon will appear in the lower right hand corner at random times. There are 20 different icons and each one requires a different level of urgency with regard to your response. Your required response will range from no action to shutting down your computer within five seconds. In the event you do not respond accordingly, your computer will lose all data. You must be well versed in each icon and what it means. Some icons will change over time, and you will need to use your own judgment as to what response to use. Finally, this feature of your computer will be in effect whether or not your computer is being used. Also, please be aware that most of your job will require you to attend to things other than your computer. But during those times, you are still responsible to monitor them. 4. You will have four computers. 5. At numerous times throughout the day, people will come into your office and attempt to prevent you from doing your job. They will do so by picking up your phone, attempting to distract you, turning off your computer, and removing needed items from your office. You must stop them from doing this. However, you cannot attempt to physically stop them and any conversation with them must be pleasant and cheerful no matter how abusive they are to you. You are only allowed to use positive incentives to get them to leave as long as those incentives are not cash or food. Please note that you are responsible for the self esteem of any people who come into your office and must ensure that they are happy when they go home each day. Finally, keep in mind that whenever these people come into your room, you must continue to monitor your computers. 6. At 3:00, you may leave if you do not have a biweekly meeting and all of your reports, emails, and phone calls are caught up and your supplies are ordered. However, it is not advised that you do so, as it may lead the general public to think that you do not do any work.
