I AM THE ONLY ad­min­is­tra­tive per­son in the front of­fice of a sub­si­dized hous­ing com­plex that sup­ports peo­ple liv­ing with chronic men­tal ill­ness. On one par­tic­u­larly busy morn­ing, a ten­ant came in to pay her rent. Fraz­zled, I said to her, “To­day is a bit rough. Ever have one of those days when you feel every­one is out to get you?” She smiled and replied, “I take med­i­ca­tion for that.”

A FEL­LOW WORKER was al­ways show­ing up late. One morn­ing the boss was wait­ing for him when he ar­rived. “What time do we start work around here?” he asked. “How in the heck should I know?” the worker replied. “Every­body is al­ready work­ing when I get in.” JAMES SPARKES, Mon­treal
