Overheard

in the cubicle next to me at work…

“I failed to notice that on your application you checked you had been convicted of a crime.”
pause
“No, that doesn’t necessarily prevent you from being hired, but I can’t read the explanation underneath.”
pause
“Possession of a deadly weapon? Oh. I see. Uhm. What was the weapon?”
pause
“A rooster? Did you just say a rooster?”
pause
“Someone from Texas sent your son a rooster for Easter?”
pause
“The SPCA did what? They came to your house and killed the rooster?”
pause
“They put you in jail for 8 days? For possession of a rooster? Okay.”

A likely story. I can’t wait to meet our new Bird Lady employee. Awesome.
