Manga-style me

Macabre City Services; or, I found this funny before my morning caffeine.

This morning, I phoned in a roadkill pickup request to city services. After entering the service ticket, the operator asked, "Do you want the city to notify you once it's been done?".

I can only imagine the poor person whose job it might be to call on things like that. "Ma'am, we are calling to report the corpse in question is no longer in the road."

It was so absurd that after ending the call, I laughed... and once out of my system, it was done.

(Confidential to cats: please do not try to cross B-- at the gentle curve near the park.)
