On Friday, a woman at work brought in a plastic Halloween pumpkin, filled it with assorted candy and placed it on her desk. Within an hour, the pumpkin was empty, so she refilled it. Within two hours, the pumpkin AND the refill bag were both empty.
In desperation, she refilled the pumpkin with sugar packets, thus cutting out the middleman.
This morning, the pumpkin was empty.
Now we have seen the depths to which some people will sink.
