Too effectiveness medicine
Matsui had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work.
His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire if he didn’t do something about it.
So Matsui went to his doctor who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed.
Matsui slept very well. In fact, he woke up before the alarm went off.

” Boss, ” he said, ” the pill actually worked!!! ” ” That’s all fine ” said the boss,
” but where were you yesterday? ”
