The Consequences of Sleeping on the Job

Check the news, honey. Apparently something crazy happened at work today. I was napping in a storage room. (Hey, I earn my siestas!) The guys didn’t give me many details. When I woke up they said it was over already.

Haircut? What haircut? Why are you laughing? Did someone…?

Argh.

Wilted

He gave her a wilted flower on February 15, just to see how she would react.

His friends thought it was hilarious.

She slapped him so hard she drew blood.

Ten years later, lying awake in bed, he realized he’d never met another girl who could make him really feel.


This story was based on the prompt “wilted” at TypeTrigger.

Baggy Trousers

“One last thing, Officer Markham.”

“Yes, Captain?”

“Look out for youths wearing baggy trousers. That’s the mark of the Hooligans’ Club!”

“Yes, sir!” Markham strode off on patrol.

The Captain chuckled. Rookies were so gullible!

He felt differently later, while processing the paperwork for seventeen wrongful arrests of baggy-trousered teenagers.
