Spotted: Please Sign

Friday, I was given the assignment to get signatures from 18 different offices for a letter. All was going well until the 16th office. I presented the person at the front desk with the letter, a signature pen, and told them this letter requires a signature, thinking nothing was out of the ordinary. As the person began to sign it, a staffer yelled out, "John, what the hell are you doing? Give that letter to Jane right now!" To my chagrin, the intern had signed his own name next to those of 15 other Members of Congress. He had ruined a perfectly good sheet.

Fortunately vengeance was served and he had to recollect each of the signatures for his stupidity.
