Occasionally cartoons are just handed to you.
One day my manager came to me with a stack of paper. “Mark,” he said, “would you do me a favor and shred these? Also, there’s lots of price info in there, so make sure to shred it really good, OK?”
I’m not kidding. “Shred it really good.”
I wasn’t quite sure how to do that – barring maybe setting the shredder on fire in the process – but I assured him I would. I wrote down “shredder set to puree” on a Post-It, and drew it up that evening.
