September 14, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a riptide. How can it be used to move a story? It could be a stretch of turbulent water or a pull of another kind. Go where the prompt leads even if you find it unexpected.
One minute she was confident and completely in her depth, the next floundering for her footing as everything went black.
Times were changing and her mind wasn’t one to easily grasp modern technology.
Her bosses knew that and had sent her on courses and seminars accordingly as it couldn’t be seen that a Senior Manager didn’t know a mouse from a trap.
It had just taken a click in the wrong icon, and the riptide of results took down the entire network. It could cost the company millions in lost orders and revenue.
Oops didn’t seem to cover it.
