During a Hobnob moment around 11am this morning, HSE administrators agreed they’d “dodged a bullet last year by not giving that 3 year old a wheelchair because he’d definitely have needed a bigger one by now?”
Lone dissenter and departmental ‘rebel’ Maureen Langan, who favours Wagon Wheels over Hobnobs, disagreed.
“The kid should have got his spokes,” she insisted.
Colleague David Brice rolled his eyes at co-worker Lauren Maxwell, as he dunked.
“That’s all very well and good,” Brice said softly, “but it’s absurd to think this little country of ours can provide every disabled child with a mobility device”.
“Next thing you know,” Maxwell agreed, “they’ll want motorized wheelchairs, automatic braking and bloody wifi!”
As they laughed, Brice and Maxwell’s eyes briefly met in a moment of mutual admiration, during which Langan could clearly be heard whispering, “Sweet Jesus!“
