A Day at the Office or The Bastard

Rated 4.20/5 based on 5 reviews
All she wants is to spend the day with her beloved husband. Instead she's going to spend it at the office, another day sacrificed to the toxic reign of The Bastard.

A tongue-in-cheek short story examining the ruinous effects of work-life imbalance.

Includes an excerpt from my novel Nothing Ventured.

"A Day at the Office or The Bastard" by Jane Oldaker was a short sweet read of this lady's day...'before, during and after work.' This entertaining read was of a woman who wants 'a day with her husband but gets a a day at the office instead with the Bastard.' It was indeed humorous at the end how this author puts in a twist. Wow, she gets to finally come home late due to having to work late ...however, upon arriving home late dinner is ready and guess who is there with a hug and a cooked meal? Wow, what a surprise ending!
