Storyline

Haiku Tunnel is a frenetic office comedy about a neurotic male secretary who is a terrific temp but a horrible perm. When his new boss (a tax attorney who just may be Satan) gives him 17 very important letters to mail out, he doesn't, and the ensuing complications bring him face-to-face with a lifetime of personal demons. Written by Anonymous

funny quote
19 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

I walked into Jacks office this morning, and I said, "Jack, I don't care if you're a partner, you owe me an apology for what you said to me on Friday." I walked right in, I said, "Jack, I don't care if you're a partner, you owe me an apology, 'cause what you said to me on Friday, it was unforgivable Jack, and you owe me an apology." I said, "Jack, I don't care if you're a partner, what you said to me on Friday, it ruined my weekend. It ruined my Saturday, it ruined my Sunday, and that's my weekend Jack and you owe me an apology!" He said, "Well I'm sorry." And I said, "Well you better be sorry because you owe me an apology!"

("He probably did owe you an apology...")

You're damn right he did! I said, "Jack, I don't care if you're a partner, what you said to me on Friday, it ruined my weekend." I woke up Saturday morning and 9-10, I was miserable. 10-11 worse, 11-12 even worse, 12-1, well that was a little better because I was having lunch....
