The End of The Day

Thanks for sharing this!

Things are growing dark at The End of The Day, and management is losing sleep over competitors who refuse to rest.

“We’re settling in for a long, dark period,” says Good Night, spokesperson for The End of The Day. “We’re not sure what tomorrow will bring.”

The End of The Day produces relaxation products, many of which no longer seem relevant in a 24/7/365 world. While things can change overnight, analysts say the company is rapidly losing visibility and focus. Some believe The End of The Day needs to retire less profitable products, and perhaps consider closing the doors on its activities.

Mr. Night admits the company is having difficulties, and says the thought of winding down is alluring. “Sometimes we dream of putting ourselves to bed,” he says. “At The End of The Day, we’re tired.”
