The Rooftop Guy by John Cook
It’s Monday morning. Dave Bourning, a despondent employee at the Department of Instruments and Measurements (DIM) is believed to have committed suicide by jumping off a roof top. Within an hour, his obviously distraught and saddened colleagues proceed to raid his office and pick it clean, including his collection of over one hundred fish figurines. The fallout from this brings out the best and worst of his fellow workers.
