Twittering Tales #106 – 16 October 2018

I’ve never tweeted in my life, but Kat Myrman’s wonderful challenge, to tax our creativity, is definitely worth trying it out. Just take her photo prompt and write a story, inspired by it, in 280 characters or fewer.

Here is this week’s prompt and my contribution. Check out all the fabulous entries here.

If you’ve never had a go, why not try a story of your own? You may surprise yourself!

The party

She hated the Christmas party.

They said it was good for staff morale and all that crap!

She hated it!

All that posing. The bling. Yuk!

Then the boss started to come on to her. She lost it.

Smack!!! Right on the nose. It looked broken.

He was a bully, and pretty ‘armless.

What a dummy!

  1. Yeah! Good for her. I hate the holiday gigs at work too. Those people are not my family…or friends. They would throw anyone under the bus in a heartbeat. Dog eat dog world. I’m just there for a paycheck and health insurance.

  2. Love what you did with this, brilliant as usual.

    I loved the Christmas parties, and I also love the season of joy. Unlike Kat’s unfortunate experiences in the workplace, my colleagues were and remain my kind and caring friends.

      1. I’ve come up against the odd character, though in fairness my experience is limited. I gave up a happy job to have children and didn’t start paid employment again (quite by accident) until twenty years ago, I remained at the same school until retirement.
