and now it was up to him to put his signature on it.
When I met him face to face , I realised how closely he adheres to
the rule book. According to him I had not submitted a document
which was required.
Procuring this paper would be a long and difficult task for me.
I asked him to consider my predicament.
And he made me sweat it out in his plush air conditioned office.

John 1 NIV (BIBLE)
