Mildred’s lawsuit is fast turning into the summer blockbuster here at Hamish Industries.
It has all of the markings of a big budget movie extravaganza. Intrigue, suspense, and a disgruntled lead woman with a high priced Scottish lawyer.
The reviews aren’t in yet but based on Clark’s complexion, he’s not enjoying the show.
Mildred’s lawyer, Duncan MacIntosh, was at the office today to have a meeting with the CEO, company lawyers and a hungover looking Clark.
I don’t know what the outcome was but when they came out of the boardroom, Mr. MacIntosh was smiling, Mildred had her hands over her head in an “I am the champion” salute and Clark looked like he had been ridden all night and put away wet.
We’re a sympathetic group and, as such, Farook immediately initiated an office pool. The betting has been fierce.
The current odds on favorite is that Clark is about to be fed to the corporate wolves and that Mildred is either going to receive a lavish buy out, get her job back, or both.
Sounds about right to me.
My confirmation came when Clark walked up to my desk with a box of pencils and barked out “See these? Well apparently anyone can stuff them up their girdle, take them home, and no one gives a crap.”
Then he threw them in my lap, marched into his office and slammed the door shut.
I should probably return Mildred’s stapler…
