OK, first of all… no, you know what, never mind. I’m recalling something my mother told me once 33 years ago about not having anything nice to say.

Who exactly was this for? Did he pass it to his manager on his last day? Will it end up proudly displayed in said managers cube next to the macaroni hearts his kids make for him on Valentine’s Day?
