Company Policy on Screaming

31 Jan

She wants to scream. She wants to scream so often that she doesn’t notice when, finally, she does. She is asked to speak to the HR Manager.
“It was just a scream. Screaming’s not against company policy, is it?”
It turns out that it is.
“What about sighing?” she enquires, carefully holding it in.



This piece of flash fiction is available to download as part of my collection of short stories, Office Life (and Death).

    Dig the title. Reminds me of some manual HR would hand out during orientation.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. It’s now published in the ebook “Office Life (and Death)”, if you fancy a look at that.
