A spoonful of humour makes the medicine go down.
Community Service: The Epilogue
Posted May 15th, 2012 at 7:47 AM by Shining Raichu
I went to painstaking effort last week recounting my act of heroism in the shopping mall, where - at great risk to my own personal safety - I fixed a potentially traumatic spelling mistake on an out-of-order ATM machine. I knew you'd all be dying to know what happened next: was the perpetrator brought to justice? Did I ever receive my badge of honour? Was there a statue erected in my name?
So I went back to the mall yesterday in hope of finding the answers to all three of those questions... and in each instance, the answer was a resounding no. However, I went and revisited the ATM to ensure it had come to no further harm... and I was thrilled with what I saw:
That, right there. That is all the thanks I need. A well-written and impeccably-spelled letter of apology for inconvenience. I don't need statues or fanfare or my rightful place cutting the ribbon at the opening of new supermarkets, because you see, I've made a difference. It's tangible, it v--oh you have got to be ****ing kidding me. The stupid ***** put a capital N where it didn't need to be. Jesus Christ.
Oh well, once more into the fray. Sigh. Back to the mall tomorrow I guess...
