Searching through today's pile of mail, you find an invitation to....

"You are invited to apply for our new lower-rate credit card..."


"You are already pre-approved..."


"Apply now for a lower rate and save on balance transfer..."


"Spend three days and two nights at our exclusive time-share resort..."


"You are invited to our midnight madness sale..."


"Mr. and Mrs. X cordially invite you to the wedding of their daughter, Y, to Dr. Z, to be held at..."

Hmmm, that might be a keeper. No, wait, weren't the X's the ones that blocked us from building the shed in our back yard?

Crumple. Toss with extreme prejudice.

Don't forget the surprise retirement party this afternoon at two o'clock! I know that not all of us got along with old Frank -- he could be a real pain in the butt sometimes -- but let's try to put all that aside and send the old boy out to pasture on a positive note. His office furniture has already been spoken for, but that beat-up old typewriter he kept around is still available. ;)

I guess the surprise is blown. These morons can't even figure out how to edit an e-mail address list.

I will be sooooooo glad to leave this dump!

Go screw yourself! I swore, tossing the letter aside.

What did you say, Fred? demanded the green-headed duck, feathers ruffled and glaring at me with one eye and then the other.

Not you, I quickly answered. The clinic wants me to attend a group session so I can talk to other people in my same situation.

That seems reasonable, he replied. Whats wrong with that? Do those other people make you feel depressed?

Not really. Well I dont know how to tell you this.

Just say it, Fred.

Its just that I cant stand being around all those damn ducks.
