Whipping boy takes a vacation of sorts
"FLASH of Anonymity" by Elizabeth Emerald



My friend Scott repairs vacuum cleaners. His shop is inundated with orphaned machines; some have lingered for years. Countless customers purportedly in a rush to have the work done perversely delay in retrieving their machines.

Scott, continually tripping over errant cords, determined last week to contact the delinquent owners.

Tag by tag, he squinted to read the faded phone numbers. To his dismay, many of the numbers were no longer in service.

Hoping to end the day on a high note, he phoned Mr. Cooper.

Very likely Mr. Cooper would be at his desk. He stopped by Scott's shop once in a while; on each occasion he'd bemoan his long hours heading the complaint department of a nationwide automotive insurance company.

When the call was picked up, Scott asked to speak to Mr. Cooper.

The man who answered said Mr. Cooper was on vacation and wouldn't be back for three weeks. He offered to direct Scott's call elsewhere.

Scott said that wasn't necessary; all he wanted was for Mr. Cooper to retrieve his vacuum cleaner.

The man replied:

In that case, I'll be right over; my wife has been nagging me for weeks to pick it up.
