Sunday Photo Fiction – May 19, 2019

Thanks again to Susan for hosting another Sunday Photo Fiction challenge.
Thanks to first-time contributor Terri Smeigh for today’s prompt.
One of the perks of the job was free meals, provided it was on the shop menu and eaten in the staff room.
Pam had jumped at the chance of saving a few bucks, but never took advantage of it.
After her trial period had ended, her boss called her in to confirm her permanent employment and to ask why.
‘I’m a vegetarian,’ she said.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    Aww, a missed opportunity.

  2. I remember winning the local pubs meat draw – not much use for a veggie.

    Vegetarians sometimes live a tough life.

    Oh no, what a bad choice of restaurants! Although there must be some vegetables, I hope? Poor woman. On the other hand, it’s probably not the healthiest of foods anyway; her coworkers might regret the long-term effects of eating too much of it.

  6. Love it, unexpected and made me laugh, too!! Well done.

    I’ve only recently come back to the Sunday posts and am adding a Friday Foto Flash on my blog. Hope you’ll check it out this Friday and join in!
