Every Monday is our office's convocation for flag ceremony. Program starts with the singing of our national anthem and ends with a closing prayer. We're all required to attend the program at exactly 8:00 a.m. But when I arrived the office, it was already 8:02. I was alone and I've decided not to attend anymore, anyway, I have lots of things to do. Later on, one-by-one my officemates arrived (also absent in the program). We agreed to just stay inside until the end of the convocation. What worries us was that our chief might scold us when she discovers that more than half of her staff were just inside. So, we listened outside for a while, waiting for the closing prayer. She has her own entrance/exit on the right side of the building. As soon as we heard the music (after the prayer), we all hurriedly ran outside (going the left side), just in time that our chief entered her room. When she went to the office, she thought that all of us attended the program because she didn't see anyone on their desk. Then slowly, one-by-one again, we entered the room as if nothing happened. Whew!
