Smeg, The Cat Has A Cousin!

Five years. That’s how long I’ve been a receptionist. Each week I'm still surprised. It’s like the best reality show you’ve never watched.

Today it was a visitor. We've had a lot of job applicants. We’re not hiring but they still have to try. Each has a different story. Since we’re a machine shop, most are casually dressed. A few still wear a suit but nothing like this last guy.

He was well spoken and nicely dressed. He was informed about the company and made small talk. He was an ideal applicant. What made him special was his clothing. He had a long, fur trimmed brown coat, custom tailored pants, and a gold chain. Oh and his pants and shirt were florescent, day glow yellow. I kid you not.

The amount of time, money, and effort he put into his outfit was staggering. Oddly, I think he pulled it off. It worked in a horrifying, blinding kind of way. He could have gone overboard with a hat but he knew that was too much. I’m left wondering what kind of car would go with that outfit?

  1. Do any slyly taken camera phone pictures exist? How about security cam footage? I'm sure my imagination doesn't do justice.

  2. Oooo... We are looking into security cam footage. I found him pacing in my lobby when I got back to my desk, so no camera phone pictures were possible. At very least, maybe I’ll see a shot of his car!

  3. Red Dwarf references are always appreciated!
