Careful What You Wish For

There once was an ambitious man named Eddie,
who wanted a job in the traveling industry.
The genie granted his wish,
but Ed never expected this;
an employer's note saying, "Welcome to the DMV!"

    Apparently Hick is my new nickname... not sure to be delighted or annoyed (just kidding!). I like the non-sense poetry forms every once in a while!

    He got off easy Tim, it could have been, "Welcome the the DMZ". which to be honest was what I was expecting hmmmmm, trust me. Take care, Richard

    Not sure what the Z stands for... but if you say it's worse than the DMV it must be pretty horrible!

    HA!!!!!! "Now serving number zero", said the new hire to self.

    So that does that make the new hire a negative since he's BELOW zero?... LOL!
