I used to work in a department that had a woman who was the department snitch. One day, I'm working on collating some legal documents and she comes up to tell me, "{Boss's name} says you're working too slow, and you need to pick up your pace with your collating." I don't recall our boss ever hanging around to watch the fascinating collating process, so I'm a little suspicious.

"How fast is fast enough?" I ask.

"Um..." she stammers.

"Sorry, that was a silly question, wasn't it? Let me rephrase: How long should it take me to finish this stack of documents that I have on my desk?"

"Oh, about an hour." I guess she didn't need to go ask our boss who supposedly had the issue.

"Okay, I'll try my best!"

Twenty minutes later, after finishing at my usual rate, I drop off the stack of papers on the snitch's desk, saying, "Whatever shall I do with my remaining 40 minutes?"
