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.
