Good morning, Mr. Avante. Yeeeaahh, I'm gonna need you to read this gigantic stack of files and send me a report on 'em by tomorrow. Sooo, if you could get started on that now, that'd be great.

Edit: High school is pretty fun, huh?

Exactly. If I'm reading something for enjoyment I'm going to take my time.

I'm not the one in a job with unrealistic demands. So you learned nothing in high school, huh?

They're not unrealistic if your reading skills are sufficient. Obviously yours aren't. Don't worry, after 9th grade they start throwing longer books and essays at you. You'll be ready for college in no time, sport.

My natural reading pace is the same as a talking pace as I'm usually doing it with an internal monologue. I got 300 something, but I think I rushed and that usually it would be much lower than that.
