Thanks as always to BWarren for setting the Sunday Whirl Wordle challenge.
There was no middle level. He was always portrayed as the villain of the piece, which was a shame but he had resigned himself to that years ago.
He could shoot pool and chain smoke with the men, in fact you couldn’t hope to meet a more likeable bloke, but he had to divide his loyalties and couldn’t disguise being a company guy through and through.
When it really came down to it though, his reign as Chief Elf was non-negotiable as he could rally the troops and his productivity methods knocked everything else into the shade.
