For me an office is an essential space. I don’t care particularly how sophisticated it is
or how small
just as long as I have one. Sometimes an office allows you knowledge you would otherwise not have.
Office Know How
My long-distance boyfriend gave me the order to reinvest. Power of attorney in hand, I headed into town, wondering if my boyfriend was wise. I knew the market’s instability despite his trust in his broker. I squashed into the peak hour train packed full of
workers going to the city. Arriving, I made the one block journey to the broker’s address and took the elevator to the ninth floor office. Removal boxes filled the reception area. An old man, his face lined and haggard, sat amongst them.
“Sorry, wrong office.” I turned and left.
My boyfriend later thanked me.
In response to Charli’s prompt where she asks:
July 27, 2016 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write an office story. It can be a setting, a place for intrigue or humor. How might an office differ from other spaces? You can compare and contrast, or create an unusual type of office. If you want, describe your ideal office space, or create a character who designs offices. Go where the prompt leads.
