Summary: Owen is late to work yet again, and Jack’s had enough of his excuses.

Owen breezed into the Hub, three hours late.

“What time d’you call this?” Jack snapped from where he stood in his office doorway.

“Dunno,” Owen replied. “Can’t find my watch.”

“You have an alarm clock, don’t you? And a phone?”

“Alarm clock needs a new battery and I never set the time and date stuff on my phone so it’s always wrong.” Owen smirked to himself as he made his way down to the autopsy bay.

The following morning, at 6am on the dot, Owen’s phone rang.

“Good morning,” Jack said cheerfully. “This is your daily wake-up call.”

Foiled again.

The End
