A Week in the Miserable Life of Lloyd Canard
This story covers only one week in Lloyd's miserable life, yet we see Lloyd suffer encounters with idiotic supervisors; moronic subordinates; a nagging wife; a bratty teenage daughter; he is attacked by a drunk cashier; accused of killing an already dead cat; is forced to attend an animal lovers conference; has his lunch snatched by an aggressive, overweight vegetarian; mistreated by airline agents; suspected of being a terrorist by airport security; deals with the discomforts of modern air travel; chased by a mob; verbally berated by a mime; mistakenly caught up in a pedophile sting; harrassed by bumbling police officers; pursued by a dim-witted detective; finds himself on an airplane with mechanical problems; and finally faces a near death out-of-body experience. In the end Canard escapes all of these trials without serious injury or prosecution. Finally back at home in the everyday tedium of his miserable life Lloyd contemplates that maybe he doesn't have things so bad after all.
