I have a relative dealing with some health issues and I’ve taken to sending them a periodic baked goods care package which in this case consisted of cookies, truffles, and cracker jacks. Â I brought the extras into work and when I did a check-up on them saw that all the raspberry truffles were gone. Â I asked my boss what happened to them:
Me: Do you know what happened to the truffles?
Boss: Â Yes, I didn’t want the staff exposed to them, so I have them now for safe keeping.
Me: So you took them all?
Boss: No, I didn’t take them. Â I impounded them.
Me: Impounded them?
Boss: Yes, I want them to be inspected by a raspberry expert before I let anyone else have them.
Me: You know one?
Boss: My wife.
Ah, executiveÂ privilege.
