Then you remember you need to quickly sign off on some very important documents but where are they? Searching frantically through your desk under the mounds of paperwork and miscellaneous items you start to feel the panic. They have been misplaced and becoming flustered, with papers flying to the floor you decide to fire off an email informing your client the forms will be late.
