The medium way to work

Mike is actually a guy I worked with when I was already a freelancer and had a standing on-site gig with his department. I kept trying to get him to quit because our various bosses worked him like a punch press. The thing about his lunch is true. He would make a move toward his sandwich and someone would drop another load of work on him. He made his edits with such force that his pencils literally curved under the pressure, and I saw "NEEDS READS" scrawled in his urgent handwriting so many times that I eventually drew for him, on a large Post-it note, a stand of cattails with the caption NEEDS REEDS. He pinned it up on the wall of his cube.
