Poetic justice

There's a temp in the office this week. Yesterday I found her with a stack of Christmas cards, all mailed from different senders. "They told me everyone had a box for their mail," she said, "but there are all these people I can't find boxes for."

I took the pile of cards from her. On top was a card for Larry. I picked that one up.

"This guy," I said, "oversaw the dismantling of my department. He laid off" and then I started throwing unopened cards in the recycling box, "Jan and Sandra and Mike and and Angie and Sam..." Then I took Larry's card and threw it in the box, too.

"And then Larry got laid off."
