My contribution to the May challenge
"Hi there. You new?"
"Started last week. Lots of newbies after that appalling disaster. You heard of course?"
"I did indeed. Terrible! They have made huge payouts in compensation. The injuries were horrific, not to mention the trauma cases. That kid was out of control. The news said he is receiving psychiatric help. I say lock him up for good. You can't have axe wielding maniacs out in the community."
"I suppose... but don't you think the boss should have took more of the blame?"
"Yeah. At least they put him somewhere he can't do much harm. He looks after the hat rabbits now."
"You know. The rabbits that come out the hats."
"Oh. Ok. That's pretty demeaning after his last job I guess. He was getting on a bit."
"It's the families I feel sorry for. I got a mop and two brushes of my own."
"Nice. My wife left me for one of those hot shot city vacuum cleaners. No little ones fortunately."
"Sorry to hear that."
"Shush, here comes the boss. Stand up straight. He's a bit of a stickler. Stick-ler. Get it!"
The Sorcerer eyed the brooms in the corner closely before settling in his armchair with a hefty tome.
