One of Charly’s colleagues was having her last day working at the university (before starting a new job in the USA) and so brought in cakes & biscuits for all her colleagues and the students presently undertaking projects in the department to indulge in.
The highlight was when the direct supervisor who is also head of department walked by, spotted the cake & asked cheerfully: “oh! Whose birthday is it today then?”
Charly’s colleague (who was having her last day): “no one’s. It’s my final day today?!”
Supervisor: “oh, really?! I wasn’t aware of that.”
Then he just took a slice of cake and walked off.
Charly’s colleague certainly appreciated her soon to be ex-boss’s non-existent farewell wishes.
