Flash Fiction #257

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson


Chris didn’t know why most people hated him.  In fact, most people felt that Chris didn’t know that they hated him.

There wasn’t a comment or request that he couldn’t read out of context, and take personal affront with.  A simple request for a work-file, had him running to HR with accusations of harassment.  There was always plenty of Guilt, and Blame, and Fault handed out.

Seemingly asleep on most Social Justice Issues, he still managed to stridently surf the crest of the Woke wave.  While not belonging to any, he constantly voiced loud opinions on BLM, LGBTQ+, and Feminism.

    Woke: a selfish ridiculous attitude towards anything by people who feel undervalued and have the need to express themselves obnoxiously without regard for others.

    You can’t just drop a photo of a weirdo roadside attraction like that without some explanation. What? Where?

    We all have our burdens to bear. Thank you for highlighting Chris’ in your story. I’m glad he’s blissfully ignorant of the hatred of so many. Or maybe he just pretends he doesn’t know…

    As others have said, I have met a few Chris’s in my time. They give woke a bad name. It’s a shame too. Thanks for sharing, needed that breath of fresh air in this often crazy world!

      I provided a breath of fresh air?? Thanx for pointing out that I have over-reached myself. 😀
      Next week – some comedy. A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down the pants. 😆

    Poor Chris. Poor everyone who has to put up with him.

      As you might notice from the comments, most of us have been exposed to a Chris-type in our work history. As my Father so indelicately used to put it – There’s one in every jockstrap! 😯
