An executive went away on a long business trip. Before he left he asked his secretary to forward all of his mail. However, he forgot to give her the key to his mailbox. When he realized his mistake, he mailed the key to his office so the secretary could send his mail to him. But, she never did mail it. The executive got angry and phoned his office, planning to fire his secretary. However, she was able to explain to him why she hadn't sent his mail. He quickly realized he was in the wrong and apologized. What did the secretary say to make the executive realize his error?

A little less info. would have made this more fun, but I liked it. Sounds like the boss from the comic strip "Dilbert."

This is also a very old teaser. I had to rate it easy and kinda boring just because i've seen this one about a billion and four times.

Wow, easy puzzle but still fun! Also, if he's that stupid, then how did he get up to the rank of executive? If he's as smart as he should be, he wouldn't have done that. Well anyway, he probably has a spare one somewhere.
