Welcome to yet another day at World's Top Business (WTB)!

snowmonster and TanCW, being the wonderfully diligent employees that they are, decided to come into work early this morning, hoping to make headway on an important project due at the end of the day. As they walked past the accountant's office, they noticed a light on in the office and the distinct sound of furious typing -- hmm, this was suspicious, given the accountant is notorious for coming into work late and leaving early. They walked on, but it was too late; the person inside had already seen them and knew that they had already witnessed too much.

Once everybody else had arrived, one employee (the Boss) stealthily slipped into the office of snowmonster and TanCW's manager (not the Boss!), carrying a small bag filled with expensive watches and jewelry, emerging twenty minutes later empty-handed. Coincidentally, snowmonster and TanCW were fired within the hour, and suddenly Hadleigh and mocha were randomly selected to complete a highly visible and important project due in mere hours!

Note regarding psych question: the Boss was told that the company and job in the answer did not have to be an actual current or past position for him or her, or even in the same industry, but the answer had to be reasonably realistic based on his or her actual interests. For example, I personally dislike sports, so I could not have said that this is a professional baseball team. It's possible the Boss is or has been a tour guide, or that s/he is an accountant (heh, the irony) who has never traveled more than 50 miles from where he or she was born, or anything in between.

Sorry, I chose the worst possible time to start this round, didn't I?

I'll go ahead and start us off here. I suppose we can eliminate bradon as the Boss since snow voted for her (assuming she remembered to lock in her vote as she said), and Tan voted for snow. No help there. Note: I know I'm stating the obvious here, but like I said before, this is my first game. Also, if I'm wrong, let me know now before I go through the whole game like that and end up feeling silly.

Odd as it may seem, the fact that the Boss restated one of the questions in their answer tells me more than the part about wanting to be a guide for a historical site does. The style seems the most like Gizzer's to me. So that's where my vote is going to go.

Locked and loaded.

I agree it sounds like a job Gizzer would love and thrive in, but I think it is too obvious. I'm placing a vote for Hadleigh since she does like to travel. But again, is that too obvious as well?

Edit: Vote for Hadleigh confirmed.

Okay then, guess I'd better stay out of a majority since Snowy did state a vote for me and I've never known her to forget to lock in her vote. I'll place a safety on Smithy.

Edit: Vote locked in.

Rather sensibly, I chose not to show up for work at that ridiculous hour. TanCW and Snowy offer a cautionary tale on the dangers of overworking / excuse for not working.

I will bravely charge into battle with a vote for Hadleigh, who I think might be a good choice - obvious perhaps, but maybe hiding in plain sight is the order of the day. Those fraudsters are always undone by something so obvious. I hope froggy doesn't mind being put in danger, but there's plenty of time left for her to change to a safety if need be, though I think we should be throwing a majority on someone.

It's Friday night beer and pizza o'clock so I may not get on again this round to change my vote if some other majority takes hold, but my vote for hadleigh is locked, loaded, signed, sealed, delivered (Oxford comma) and confirmed.

You also complained last round when I started the round too late at night! And I don't see the point of waiting 10 hours if a) the Boss has submitted a memo and b) everybody has already logged in that day.

I will also vote for Giz, I agree that I could see her in that type of job AND, more importantly, I strongly believe we need to protect Bradon from being in a majority and start trying to make some bigger majorities.

I'm joining the majority for Gizzer

Edit : Vote locked. Yes I do like to travel and we are flying to Singapore on the 7th December for a week. Then Late January we fly to Capetown for 6 days before boarding the Queen Mary for a 15 day cruise back to Fremantle. Should be fun. Hey I am flattered that you think I'm the Boss but I'm not.

I'm not going to vote for myself.

It could be very risky for me to vote for Hadleigh.

I'll vote for ppjones.

Edit: vote confirmed
