New Zealand Man Brings Clown To Meeting For Emotional Support

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Joshua Jack got an unsettling email from his bosses. The New Zealand man was called to a meeting about his future at the ad agency where he worked. He was told he could bring a friend for emotional support. Sounded bad. So Jack thought, best to bring in a professional. He brought a clown. Jack told New Zealand's Magic Talk radio he was fired, but he's got another job lined up. And he left the meeting with a couple of balloon animals. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
