Say you could still just bail when you felt like it. You know what you would look like when you did it? You would look like this raccoon.
Many thanks to reader and supporter MV for bringing this absconding racoon to our attention.
The Hairpin commentary on the racoon is a tad bleak. It posits that we can’t abscond anymore because “there is nowhere left to bail to. The darkness is closing in on all sides.”
I know what she means. Workers’ rights are being eroded. The precariat swells. Free movement is under attack. But I’m still at large and if I believed for a second that escape was impossible I’d lose my final marble.
“Happy to discuss,” as a bastard might write at the end of workplace email.
