Determined to explain why he showed up late to work again, Larry Michaels, a department manager at Sears, convinced himself last Tuesday that traffic lights are rigged against him.
"I feel like the traffic lights are conspiring to slow me down. I wake up 10 to 15 minutes after my alarm sounds, take a 20 minute shower, stop by a couple stores to buy a donut, and then proceed to get stuck at every single red light.There's nothing I can do differently to show up to work on time." said Michaels.
Larry Michaels reports further evidence to support his theory. He explained ""It's weird because I feel like I only get stuck at red lights when I'm running late. So there's an obvious correlation."
Michaels was fired the day after he explained this theory to his boss.
