Paul hated his job. He spent eight hours per day in a giant orange ball wearing a giant orange ball hat selling giant orange ball t-shirts. It was humiliating, but Carrie had expensive tastes.
Paul had to make sure people used gender-appropriate garbage cans. Pink for girls and gray for boys. He didn’t ask about gender-fluid people. As long as they kept their gender fluids away from him, he didn’t care.
That wasn’t his boss’s only idiosyncrasy. He spent all day upstairs looking through a tiny window. Every time someone bought something, he laughed maniacally, saying, “I farted on that.”
