there i was in a shop (it happens) that sells greetings cards (yes they still exist).
a shopper asks: "do you have a welcome to the company card. we've just got a new member of staff and we want to welcome them."
assistant: "doesn't look like it. you could always cross out 'leaving' on this 'sorry your are leaving' card." followed by an insincere chuckle.
shopper: "that's not a bad idea we are in pr and we are creative like that and good sense of humour.'
assistant: nods and agrees.

you could tell that the assistant wanted to say what i was thinking: "creative? you wish!".

she didn't.

it is a reason why i admire most shop keepers.
