Welcome to Your Life; There's No Turning Back
Well, my vacation is over. I started work at my new firm.
Along with the requisite forms for my health insurance and 401k, I was given a zippered duffel bag with the firm logo on the front.
I thought, "Oh goody! Free stuff!"
I opened it to find a gas mask, a flashlight, a bottle of purified drinking water and a card with printed emergency phone numbers and evacuation procedures in case of a terrorist attack.
Yes, welcome to the life of a Manhattan high-rise office worker.
Perhaps they should have included cyanide pills for a quick and painless exit. #
