no new episodes of The Office but at least there's real life

Page 2 today, NY Times Metro Section: Two guys prop a dead friend onto a rolling desk chair and wheel him around the corner to a Pay-O-Matic to cash his last check from Social Security. Not wanting to arouse suspicion, they leave him on the sidewalk. When the clerk asks where the payee is, they say, "Outside." They go out to get him and are busted by passers-by. Even in Hell's Kitchen, people are alarmed by the sight of a corpse flopping from side to side as men try to make him sit up in an office chair.

On the next page: A woman is run over by an SUV while sitting in a booth eating lunch at Arby's.
