But then the boss said: "Stop don't touch this, I am doing an experiment. I have to see who notices this on the floor". What's this? Why? And what does it mean? 2. Another day I arrive at the workplace. The boss was around. The path to my workplace is blocked by a recycle bin which was put in the middle of the path without any apparent reason.
