I is for International


#AtoZChallenge 2023 letter I

A lifetime ago, I worked at a record company in a division that made compilation albums (think the infomercials that used to come on during late night tv). The company had outgrown its space, and about half a dozen of us shared a large, open area, surrounded by smaller offices. One day, a young woman who worked in the International department stuck her head out of her office door and addressed the group of us.

"Is Mexico in Europe?"

After a moment of stunned silence, someone answered, "Nooooo."

"Okay, that's what I thought," she said and disappeared back into her office.

The end.
