Why is irony in quotation marks? And what in the frak is ironic. Or should I just google employment agency and short staffed? Is it employment or unemployment agency. I mean one had a job, would they need government assistance?
@Catfishjohn: Irony is in quotation marks to designate it as the word he asked her to spell. Whether it’s an employment or unemployment agency (I’ve seen them called both), it exists to help people find jobs. That the agency meant to help people find jobs is short-staffed is ironic. You should probably look up irony.
@gabylou2001, maybe you should look up the definition of irony. When something is ironic, it is a result that is the exact opposite of what you expected it to be. So unless she expected them to be over staffed to find out they were understaffed it wasn’t ironic.
