An escape route

I‘ve proven over the years that I’m not a great employee and my response to this week’s 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups as the line was crossed … is my tongue in cheek view of employed bliss!

I’d gone too far this time. The way she said, “but I’m sure you didn’t mean to do it” with that faintly complicit smile directed at her partner, not at me, was my confirmation. Of course I’d meant to do it. I’d imagined a way out and planned my escape for months. I’d worked hard to test boundaries, check out the limits, prod at the perimeter of the rule book. Eventually I realised that it wasn’t the big things that would break their resolve and as the line was crossed, as I pulled into her designated parking space, I knew that tomorrow I’d be free.

    Hahaha. YES! I like it! I had no idea what was coming. The last sentence made me laugh.
