             Take a Timeout, Stanley

An analyst by trade, Stanley’s favorite diversion was going to basketball games. Even there, he studied the crowd and traffic flow so he could get in and out of games quickly.

He discovered that he could miss the crowd by arriving well after the game started, and if he left ten minutes before it ended, he could beat everyone to the parking lot, shaving 62% off his trip home.

Stanley’s wife, also an analyst and a truly dedicated fan, did her own evaluation after being forced to leave exciting games early.  Her projection: Stanley’s income would decrease 46% after alimony payments.
