The Scam Artist

Another member from the Cast of the Co-Workers, this fellow is easily recognized by his slinking appearance, generally 10-15 minutes after the start of work. He quickly rushes to his assigned seat, as everyone else is busy checking emails, voicemails, and the last crisis from yesterday. Lunch is taken a few minutes early and lasts a few minutes too long. Afterall who counts five or ten minutes here and there? Time cards do little catch the Scam Artist; the honor system is still used and no one punches a card. Special projects are carefully padded with extra time, so as to cushion their fall. Appearances must be maintained. Continuation of the great knowledge hoax perpetuates. Unwilling to jeopardize their own foibles, no one brings the Boss's attention to the hours shaving from the 40 hour work week by the Scam Artist.
