Next? Locusts. Probably.
Awhile back, I got a call from the producers of a Norwegian TV show, “Onkel Amerika,” starring Dansken & Fingern. One of the hosts (Esben “Dansken” Selvig) wanted me to help him prank the other host (Thomas “Fingern” Gullestad), while they were filming here in the USA (South Dakota). I obliged. It was fun. Here’s the video:
It is with great regret that I announce the discontinuation of Birdie’s employment in the show.
I had no choice but to fire him. He has had a very poor attitude as of late, which created a hostile work environment.
Granted, I did accidentally crush his favorite cage, but I apologized and offered to buy him a new one; he just gave me the silent treatment. Ever since then, he refused to speak to me, and refused to leave his cage. He just sat in there, silently sulking.
When I informed him that I would no longer be needing his services, he just stared at me in a threatening manner. He ignored my requests for him to leave – I had to physically remove him from the house.
He still hasn’t left the property. He’s still out there on the sidewalk, staring at me through the window (see photo, below). I think he’s trying to intimidate me. And, honestly, it’s working. I fear for my safety. There’s no telling what a disgruntled ex-employee will do – especially one who so obviously didn’t like me to begin with.
Do you think I should call the authorities?
