Yeah, that's an odd one. Here is what comes to mind:

Boss: "You're late again!"

Employee: "The time clock is in the wrong place and makes me late."

Boss: "Can you get here a little earlier, perhaps?"

Employee: "OSHA compliance regulation 7C695 states:'Employees must not be made to wait to clock in for work, nor can the time clock be within 10 feet of the production floor.' So you better move the clock or I'm reporting you to OSHA."

Boss: "You're fired."

Employee: "See you in court."
