Moncton — With little regard to his financial future, Moncton man Tony Johnston is simply relieved today that he won’t have to endure another several hours of soul-crushing employment and is looking forward to spending the rest of the day in reckless abandonment, following news that his employer has shut down operations in the Moncton area indefinitely.
Johnston, who was let go from Ferris Marketing after the company suddenly closed with little warning, said simply, “OK,” and proceeded to NB Liquor.
“It’s a pretty nice day out,” said Johnston, while waving away dozens of fruit flies hovering around an open can of beer on the deck of his apartment for which rent is due shortly. “As far as I’m concerned, fuck ’em.”
As of press time, Johnston was airing his grievances concerning his former employer to a small audience at a Moncton pub, catching the ear of only one polite neighbouring man who was also playing a VLT.
