FOWC with Fandango — Opening

Our word today is Opening.

There was unrest in the office.
One member of staff believed someone was after their job, and another couldn’t give a flying fig about meeting company deadlines.
The two of them would whinge and whine to each other about everyone else, and tempers started to fray, especially at management level.
A piece of confidential paper was seen by eyes that should not be privvy, and the annotations thereon led to gossip and a firing.
The other took umbrage, and became even more lackadaisical in their approach, believing themselves to be indispensable to the company.
Someone sitting on the sidelines took everything on board, and seeing an opening for potential promotion, expressed an interest in the vacated position.
They got more than they bargained for when the second member of staff was fired for misconduct, and they were offered the position previously held by both.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
