A man learned shortly before quitting time that he had to attend a last minute business meeting.

He tried unsuccessfully to locate his car-pool members to let them know that he would not be leaving with them.

He hastily scribbled a message to one fellow and left it on his desk.

"I have a last-minute meeting. Leave without me. Dave."

At 700 p.m., the man comes back to his desk and finds this note . . . "Meet us at the bar and grill across the street. You drove, you big dummy!"
