Storyline

Working in a New York high rise office, Appleby is under pressure to be more productive from his tyrannical boss. Two of his co-workers talk him into putting a highly critical note in the suggestion box. He does, but the boss offers him a raise and a promotion if he'll come to a conference with a big client. Unable to retrieve the note or his arm from the box, he takes it with him to the meeting. Written by WesternOne
