Good luck with your new cancer!

One of our techs has recently graduated from Respiratory Therapy school, and as such is changing jobs, leaving us.

A card was circulated for people to well-wish upon, and I wrote something along the lines of “good luck with your new career”. My handwriting isn’t terribly good.

Shortly after the card was presented, I started getting some odd questions, like, ‘does respiratory therapy make you more likely to get cancer’? to which I of course said no. (?Why would they ask me that?).

Finally someone asked me why I’d wished her luck on her new cancer; after I figured out my penmanship deficit, all was forgiven, but I agree that’d be odd to see in your farewell card.
