Sigh... ning

"Is Mary's card around? I've not signed it yet," I said to Maisie.

"No one except me and Maudie have signed it. We bought it weeks ago and thought it would be best to give it to T.Aldous straight away to sign so that we'd get the usual delay over and done with first and then get it round the libraries in time for her retirement. Just this once we wanted to avoid getting everyone to sign it, give it to T.Aldous and then not get it back till a week after the event."

"I don't need to ask the next question, do I?"

"Better not. I'd only cry."

Let's hope he's not writing a CHEQUE for the collection!

St Jude said...

Do you need a tissue?

How sad.

I think flogging would be an appropriate lesson for T.Aldous, perhaps 40 of them.

And Maisie should not go un-lessoned for not following up on the card.

Cow is against this time-honored tradition of letting the boss hitch a ride on the employee-purchased card anyway.

Let the boss buy their own card, and present.

Anarchy, I know.

Macy: thank God! he's not allowed to write cheques.

St Jude: ooh matron!

Charlie: par for the course, and Mary has done similar in the past. Maisie spends half her life trying to liberate things out of that damned office.

Ms. Cow: dangerously subversive (-:

I'm worried about Mary. It would be sad if she thought you hadn't thought about her. Especially as you had.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Pat: you are both compassionate and prescient.
