"She's such a good employee!" - A story in 50 words

"Okay, does that sound reasonable?"

Several responses flashed through her mind at lightning speed. She edited out the obscenities, the threats of bodily harm or murder and anything that might be deemed impolite until all that was left was the answer she knew she'd have to give.

"Sure. That's fine."


The randomly generated word for today's story was 'reasonable'. I think moments like that happen when you feel like you really, really need your job and the chance that voicing your opinion will make things better is virtually nil. May we all successfully escape the rat race and start living our dreams.

I'm pretty much doing my own thing with it but if you'd like to check out the official challenge, here's the most recent prompt I think: https://steemit.com/challenge/@jayna/50-word-story-challenge-week-in-review-and-new-prompt
If you use it, you can also use the official #fiftywords tag so you'll get more exposure for your post from other participants (and if your story is good @jayna might resteem you). Good luck!
