Tension will be in the air, but so was fun. There was this morning shift which began at 10. I used to head this on many occasions.
One day the furious editor came to me, threw the day’s edition and asked, “What’s this shit?”
“No boss. This was done by night shift.”
“Do not shun responsibility,” he blasted me for a minute and disappeared.
He returned with a sheet of paper this time and threw it on the table. On it was written by a reader, “Close your paper and open a barber shop.”
I almost laughed out.
The angry editor melted. “Be careful,” he warned and started moving off.
“Actually it’s a good idea, I think we will get better paid,” I whispered to my colleague.
The editor heard this. Luckily, he also just smiled and went away.
