A/N: Another one that’s 100 words first try!

“Jack, I need this week’s report for the Prime Minister as soon as possible, please,” Ianto said, sticking his head into Jack’s office.

Looking up from the oversized stack of paperwork he was gradually wading his way through, Jack frowned in confusion.

“I just gave you that, it’s the top file in the last pile I finished.”

“No, that was last week’s report, now I need this week’s so I can send them together with an apology for them being late. Again.”

Jack sighed. “This is so unfair!”

“If you did your paperwork on time, you wouldn’t have a backlog.”

The End


LOL Ianto has a point
He does, but there are so many things vying for Jack's attention. Ianto, naked Ianto, Ianto's coffee...

Thank you!
Jack, like me, wonders if anyone actually READS the mountain of paperwork some organisations manage to generate. In Torchwood's case if anyone read it do they UNDERSTAND it? Ianto will continue to cajole and Jack will continue to suffer.
The thing is, Torchwood's paperwork is mostly used by Torchwood, the information in their reports could be vital to future teams, or to the world when First Contact is eventually made. That's why Ianto insists it is done. Other people insist on having copies though, lol!

Thank you!

You can teach an old dog new tricks, but you can't make it do paperwork on time!

All too true in Jack's case!

Thank you!
