Ultra-rich slick boss had a long flight on his private AIRPLANE after a long, hard, grueling week on Friday. Thankfully it was time to head home for the lovely weekend. He got into his old, classic CAR and it wouldn't start. He threw a fit and threw his keys which flew into the pothole. Now he would have to find another RIDE home. At first he tried hailing a TAXI, but then he remembered those are hardly a thing any more with UBER. He didn't have an account, so he tried new hitchhiking and flagged down a motorcyclist. He rode on the back of the MOTORCYCLE to the SUBWAY. Once a TRAIN came along he got onboard, only this train was going the wrong way. By the type he finally figured it out, he was miles from the airport. Being the big business man that he was, he hopped on the rented SCOOTER to a nearby travel agency and asked for a ride in the HELICOPTER. They told him no, so he stole one of the employees' BICYCLES and rode that for about 15 feet before he hit rush hour traffic. The employees were running after him, so he got off and ran. He jumped onto the TRAM till he was out of sight. He sneaked into the back of a TRUCK. The truck driver didn't realize it and kept driving with boss in the back. Soon, he stopped and Mr. Business was able to get off. As exhausted as he wasn't able to WALK few minutes home. He stood at a bus stop, waiting for a BUS. The problem was he didn't have coins with him and he slumped on the bench, outstretching his feet. Passer-bys tossed him some coins, mistooking him for a bum. By this time, the weekend was already over, now Monday. Time for him to call in sick.

His superboss suspected, so he hopped in his LIMOUSINE to check in on the sick boss. By the time he arrived, the sub-boss had disappeared into TELEPORT.
