Flash Fiction #130


PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot


He was here, finally! He’d worked long and hard – too long, but he was finally in Seattle, surrounded by the two things that made his life worthwhile – great coffee, and computers.

It had taken a while for Microsoft recruiters to notice him, but they had, at last, offered him employment. He would almost have worked for nothing, but the pay was great….and the perks, pun intended!

Where else would the morning commute to work include a dedicated subway Breakfast Car serving bacon, eggs, and Starbucks Coffee? Take that, you nap room Googlers!   😛


Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

    Sounds like my kinda job! There’s nothing better than dictating your own environment and schedule.

      Some forward-thinking companies like Google and Microsoft allow that, and get great production and loyalty. Too many of the others simply increase the floggings, until morale improves. 😯 😦

    Yes, very creative and a fun read. Love it when you can say, “Take that…” to something or someone

      Some Google workers like to flaunt their chef-equipped kitchens, and their gyms, and their games rooms, and their nap/relaxation rooms, including the large office-full who have taken over the rebuilt auto-parts plant where I used to work. I just felt a fictional someone else might like to brag. 😛
