Mr. Slow in the books

Mr. Slow takes so long to do everything. It took him until New Year to open his Christmas presents, and until Easter to write his thank-you letters. He tries to get a job. When he tried to be a news reporter, it took him until midnight to read the news. When he tried to be a taxi driver, he delayed Mr. Snooty in getting to the train station. The last job he gets is driving a steamroller.
