after seeing the adjustment bureau (which is great) at the cinema, i went on research for background of the story and here it is: philip k. dick's short-story adjustment team (20 pages):
ed fletcher's bureau lies in sector t137, an area that has to be adjusted today. at 8.15 am the dog should have summoned an incident, which should have got ed earlier to his job, so that he could have been adjusted too. but the dog missed the right time... now ed is late and he stumbles right into the middle of the adjustment.
dick was a big sci-fi-author, he wrote for example the novel ubik, upon which the movie vanilla sky is based (there is also a spanish version, abre los ojos, which apparently is even better...)
you can download the story free on kindle or as pdf.-file (if you don't mind some serious tipping-errors and 2 pages missing).
