As a temporary employee, Bill met all kinds of people all over. Some stood in his cubicle doorway seemingly like forever, complaining about how busy they were. Others spent a great deal of energy planning their retirement 20-plus years down the road. Over the short cubicle walls, he regularly overheard arguments between the Comma Cliques: those who advocated for the Oxford comma, those against it at all costs.

Bill looked at his staple collection, aghast at how quickly time passed with so little accomplished and decided on his own new retirement plan: buy a lottery ticket on the way home.
