After leaving my job,I was amazed to hear that one of my old colleagues,Alan,had been spotted with a new girlfriend.Alan had never shown any interest in romance,so this was big news.A mutual friend said the girl was very nice and chatty,but the more she spoke the more she reminded him of a horse – big teeth,long face,wide nostrils.

I decided to visit my old workplace for more details.The following day,I found myself sipping coffee with my ex-colleagues and my replacement.Alan was called away to take a phone call,so I seized the chance to ask about the new girlfriend.

"Yes,it's true," said one,so I launched into a full repeat of the horse description,grinning merrily.

A silence fell and faces became serious.Then my replacement looked into my eyes and said,"It's me."

I never went back – and I wasn't invited to their wedding.
