Caution: Use Only for the Nicest, Sweetest People


There are a few people in the world who deserve the kindest words. There may not be an abundance of 'em, but this is for those few gems. Just leave a couple lying around where co-workers will find them. Re-write it for gender.

 Warehouse Employee Awarded "Nicest Employee"

City Awards Warehouse Employee Title

"It was an easy choice this year," said Gloria Johnson, spokeswoman for the contest.

Yourtown---- (NOTICE: Any names of towns, locations, people, institutions, etc., used in these sample fake newspaper stories, are purely fictional, chosen at random, and are not meant to portray or represent any real person, place or deed. Remember that no matter what name a writer chooses to use in any fictional story, there is a real person (or many persons) SOMEWHERE who have that exact name.)

A Kent woman, Casey Jones, was awarded Kent's 39th annual "Nicest Employee" award. Casey works for XY Enterprizes, a regional distribution center for Hanson Inc. in the valley.

"Well, sure, I'm happy to be chosen," said Ms. Jones, "but," she added in characteristic modesty, "I'm not sure I deserve it."

But her coworkers disagree. "Casey has always been a rock of helpfulness and compassion," said John Walker, a dock worker. "No matter how unruly or obstinate a customer might become, Casey always has time to help them through a problem or a mix-up. No one deserves this award more than Casey. No one at all." "I wish I had a whole company made up of Casey Jones's," commented her boss, Rob Smith. "We have a fine crew here, and lots of these folks are deserving of their own awards. But Casey has always been special to us. We wouldn't know what to do without her."

Dave Brown, a truck driver who's in and out of the warehouse most days, said, "I can always count on Casey to be one of the brightest spots in my day. I look forward to stopping at this warehouse just to see her smile."

Paul Moore voiced an almost identical opinion, as did everyone else this reporter spoke with. "Casey is just a sweet, sweet woman," said another co-worker, Bette Davis. "I don't know if Casey knows how many friends she has here. Maybe it's time we let her know."

"That's just what this award is about," said Gloria Johnson. " let someone know when they're cared about and appreciated. We're happy to have someone like Casey Jones to present it to."
