The young man held out several sheets of paper; Thelma hastily snatched them and ran onto the waiting train without so much as a thank-you.
This is not to say Thelma wasn’t grateful. Rather, she was simply on a tightly-scheduled crusade for justice. Her appointment with the lawyer was in a few hours, and those papers contained definitive proof that she’d been fired from her job on the basis of her age. This had been a tricky one. Her coworkers were perfectly correct when they complained that the office secretary typed too slowly and couldn’t keep up with the latest technology, so Thelma had been forced to hire some geeky kid to find the emails that featured those complaints. After the payout, that little expense would be worth it.
Went to trivia last night. We won best team name: Team Cat in a Shark Costume, Riding a Roomba, Chasing a Duckling. I know, I know. It's the best name you've ever heard. You'll never be able to come up with something better. (It refers to this delightful video, which you should really watch. I <3 the internet.)
