A short note was found under a waste bin. It read: ok for now. uncertainty later. will speak when possible. ha. yrs. And the initials were smudged. A man found this note. The man’s name was Hall. He worked for a textile company. Three months prior to having found the note, Hall had insulted someone he had been intimate with. When he found this note, he was reminded of this person. He didn’t care for his job, but he kept it anyway. He felt that this was easier than looking for a new one. After reading the note, he decided that he would try to contact the person he had insulted. He wrote them a note. It read: for now, certain. speaking when possible. unamused. yrs. H. His initial wasn’t smudged – he made sure of this. He was going to stamp it and drop it in the post, but he remembered that the rate for stamps had gone up recently. He only had stamps at the old rate, so he didn’t send the note. He still works at the textile company, and he still prefers this to looking for a new job.
