A line from Never Assume, the first story in The Absurd Tales of Mr Griffs series. In this scene, Steve Moran, Mr Griffs' difficult neighbour, reaches his breaking point when he realises that his only remaining suit has been ruined. Unlike Mr Griffs, who couldn't care less about what he wears, Steve values the power and authority that comes from being dressed in designer clothes.
| Steve hesitantly looked down at his filthy suit. He began to hyperventilate. 'This is just too much. I don't have any more suits. What am I going to wear to work?' The thought that he would have to go into work without wearing a suit was a reality he couldn't face. There was nothing left for him to do. He had to call in sick - he had no choice. |
All Things Griffs
Mr Griffs leads a peaceful life. Or so he claims to. He lives on a quiet street, Pickle Mouse Crescent, in the idyllic town of Cornville. Yet for some reason, Mr Griffs always manages to find trouble. Or does trouble find him?
