My tale …

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Board.

0She was thinking of leaving, it was just a matter of finding another job. 

Sitting at a desk, staring at a screen, wearing a headset and listening to complaining customers was okay at first,  but not anymore, she was so bored.

As she bent a paperclip into a question mark hoping it might help with her quest, she gazed from the window and watched as the Chairman of the Board entered the car park in his gleaming Bentley. 

He made a complete hash of parking it, going backwards and forwards, before scraping a door on a gatepost.

It gave her an idea.

Six months have passed and she still works there, but now she wears a uniform and a chauffeur’s peaked cap.


Thanks to Denise at GirlieOnTheEdge for hosting.

    Made me smile, Keith. I like her character: not content with boredom and always on the lookout for something more fun.

    How resourceful of her! And I imagine a little more interesting. Until that is…the next light bulb goes off in her head, lol
    Entertaining story, Keith.
