Hannah, take a memo.
Hannah, write a PSA.
Hannah, did you make my flight arrangements yet?
Hannah, coffee, STAT!
Hannah, the phone is ringing – still.

Hannah, juggle my balls, please.

Right away, sir.

Ever have a job like that? Yeah, me, too. The italicized words, of course, are in Hannah’s mind voice.

Thanks, Trifecta, for another great challenge.

    My mind is that of a 12yo boy, that italicized line had me giggling.

    Hehehe….not sure my response would be the same as Hannah’s, but I guess that might be a good reason why I don’t have that type of job!

    Sometimes I wish my boss would give me more to do at my boring job, but then I wouldn’t have all those boring hours to think up new stories. (: Great piece!

    Oh lord been there done, done that yes sir…no sir… juggle my balls….? Security!!!Very comical look at the prompt. Well done Barb.

  10. Not sure if it was your intent, but that italicized phrase is a riot. (I’m also a 12 yr-old boy.)

    Hannah probably has to have her own set to deal with this imbecile. 😉

  12. Bee says:

    Yep. I’ve definitely had a boss like that. Nicely done!

    Gotta love the workplace! Bosses like that are such a pain.

    So real. I can see a put-upon secretary thinking just that… and that is what makes this a perfect 33. Probably best use of ‘juggle’ to date.

    This is so funny…I never had a boss like that but I recognize frustration.

  16. lumdog says:
