PROMPT: Quartet

0
Every morning, he leaves his condo and always forgets to shut off his bedroom light. When he arrives home in the afternoon, he promises himself that he will turn it off the next day, but never does. It's a vicious cycle. He drives his 2001 Chevrolet Impala to work every day and actually slows down at yellow lights. He stops at a Dunkin Donuts at 8:00 on the dot and orders a large coffee with two creams and a sugar and a half. They never get his order right. He never says anything about it.  At lunch, he unwraps his tuna fish sandwich and brings out a tupperware container of lettuce and pours a little low-fat balsamic vinaigrette on it. He's been trying to lose weight for the past three years, but only managed to lose six pounds.
