I figured there’d be repercussions when Clark fired Typhoid Mildred.
Mildred’s not the type to be put out to pasture, and she’s never been fond of Clark.
My guess was that there’d be some nasty letters, slashed tires, and maybe a good old fashioned ass-kicking.
I never expected her to sue.
But according to the rumor mill, that’s exactly what’s happening. And in typical Mildred fashion, she’s not just suing; she’s going for the jugular.
Otto said she’s hired some high profile Scottish labor lawyer and that they are coming out with “cabers blazing.”
She’s looking for $200 million in damages, her job back, and Clark’s left testicle. (I’m not sure why she’d want her job back if she was awarded $200m, or why the left nut is preferable to the right, but I’ve long since given up trying to figure out the woman).
Clark hasn’t taken it well.
He spent the day in a meeting with HR and legal, and there was a lot of screaming and swearing. “I’m not taking the fall for that!” “What do you mean the bitch has pictures?” and “Do I need my own lawyer?” were repeated refrains.
Rumour is Mildred knows where all the Hamish skeletons are hidden.
Naturally, no one is talking about it publicly.
All I know is that Clark looks suspiciously like a man who’s eaten some bad haggis and is about to pay the price.
