Ellen’s day turned into one clusterfuck after another. It was petty stuff--but urgent. It made for a long day.
It was 7:10 PM before she was able to cut loose and flee that cheese-maze of a workplace known as ‘the office’.
She heard Joe’s keyboard still going rat-a-tat-tat. He was the last person there--except for her. Looks like he wins Chump of the Day honors, she thought, because I’m out of here!
Joe's cubicle was next to the exit. Ellen was just moving past when she thought she heard him chuckle.
“What’s so funny?” she stopped and asked, thinking he was laughing at her.
“Nothing,” Joe told her, “just these jerks on the radio.”
The volume was set so low that Ellen hadn’t heard it.
“You weren’t laughing at me, then?” she asked.
“Why would I do that?” Joe asked.
“No reason,” she mumbled.
All day long Ellen had clomped around on five-inch heels in a mini-skirt and a V-neck top. It was a new look for her and she felt self-conscious about it. That’s why she thought Joe was laughing at her.
The idea was to put some excitement into her wardrobe by wearing tighter fitting, more revealing clothing. But the whole thing backfired. It felt fake.
