Mildred got her job back.
She didn’t get her 200 million and she didn’t get Clark’s left testicle, but she got what she really wanted.
She looks very pleased to be back at Hamish.
And that is a testament to just how dedicated and crazy the woman is.
Oh, and we also received a memo from HR saying they’re pleased to announce that: “Effective immediately, Clark Renforth has been transferred to a management position in our Florida Branch, and while the recruitment process is under way, Carlita Paonessa will serve as Acting Manager.”
Clark doesn’t seem too broken up about leaving us.
As he packed up, we all heard him laughing and shouting “Florida? Awesome!”
Later, he danced out of his office and told us all how “sad” he was to be leaving and how much he would miss us.
It would have been easier to believe if he hadn’t been smiling from ear to ear.
He called us a great team and then skipped back into his office and finished packing.
Looks like it’s worked out for Clark and Mildred.
Speaking of Mildred…
When I had a moment alone with her I asked “So, did you steal the pencils?”
She looked me straight in the eye and said “Damn right I stole the pencils, ya eejit. I’ve been here 41 years and I’m entitled to help myself to a box of pencils, the odd stapler and occasional laptop. But if you tell anyone, I’ll cut your balls off.”
I think I gulped.
She burst out laughing and said, “Close your mouth, you’ll catch flies. I didn’t steal the bloody pencils.”
Then she chortled and went back to work.
Yeah, she stole them. I think…?
