EMPLOYEE OF THE WEEK

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

It was nice of his former employers to keep sending stagehand Joel Priske an annual Christmas card, commending him for “good work over the past year.” Nice, but inaccurate—he left a theatre company in Antwerp, Belgium, five years ago after a scrap with management. It was even nicer that they kept paying him a salary the whole time. Last week, the company finally realized its error and formally cut off the funds, and cards.
