Johnson and the Boss Miskey, Miscue, and Misconstrue: the Friday on Wednesday Mis-Fictioneer

This is one boss whose contest you don’t want to win…

Friday Fictioneer – sometimes Friday Fictioneer is truly a fiction because it’s not just on Fridays. It’s also on Wednesdays and Thursdays – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s: humor

Johnson and the Boss Miskey, Miscue, and Misconstrue

Boss, this is ridiculous. Get me out of here.
Why, Johnson? You won this month’s contest fair and square.
Boss, that may be true but this isn’t what I wished for.
It is exactly what you wished for.
C’mon boss, you know what I wished for.
Johnson, you were voted the “Employee of the Month” and that person gets their       wish as their reward.
Yes, boss, that’s true. And what did I wish for?
To go to the keys.
Boss, that was the Florida Keys, not the piano keys!

  1. Well, you know, Randy,

    They say to be careful what you wish for. I, too, thought of the pointy haired boss in Dilbert. Guess he got sent to the keys the hard way, Plink, plank, plunk.



    • Let me just add that your story was much more original than my comment. Once I hit reply I noticed Rochelle had said the same thing! So let me change my comment to say that I like the heck out of this! ;D

  2. Very funny. I agree with David, that is one very twisted boss. How on earth could he misinterpret that badly?

  3. Ooh, you have to be careful how you phrase your wishes! You’ve hit on an archetype here. The wish gone wrong. Not as horrific as ‘The Monkey’s Paw’ but I don’t suppose the process of being slammed through the front of a piano is particularly pleasant as an experience! Thanks for the good read. Ann

Have some fun...
