StoryLittle Miss Late is late for everything, and can't find a job. She tries to work in a bank, but by the time she gets there, the bank has closed. She tries to be a secretary for Mr. Uppity, but he goes home late. The job she gets is as a servant for Mr. Lazy, because he does things at the wrong times, so this works out for Mr. Lazy.
