CAUGHT IN THE SACK – BUBBLE GUM/SKIRT STORY
“So who did you say got a sack letter?” Bubble Gum was trying to make sense of everything Skirt had been saying.
“The new Marketing guy… and the chick on Cuff’s team.” Skirt was grinning from ear to ear.
“Both of them?! What did they do? Oh my goodness… don’t tell me! Were they…”
“Caught!” Skirt clapped her hands gleefully.
Bubble Gum looked at her suspiciously. “Wait, why are you so excited?”
“Can’t you see? It is catastrophically epic! Activities in the sack… that led to the sack!” Skirt said, still grinning widely.
“Ok, I have no idea what you’re high on this Monday morning; but you have a point. Who gets a new job and gets to banging his colleague right away, and in the office! Things were definitely bound to get out of hand.” Bubble Gum said as she looked one last time in her tiny hand mirror.
Skirt responded, “you mean, get out of sack. Hehehe.”
“Ok madam, it’s not #dryjokeswednesday yet; let’s go, meeting’s in 5.”
Skirt made a face at her partner, and got out of her chair.
CAUGHT IN THE SACK – RED TIE/BLUE TIE STORY
“Red, I need to ask you a question.” Blue Tie said. “Tell me the truth o, you know say I be your guy.”
Red Tie looked amused, “you’ve started with your drama. What happened?”
“I noticed you hardly bring your car to the office anymore. More importantly, I noticed Freckles always waits to take you in her car after closing hours… what’s going on between you two?”
“Oh boy! I didn’t know that was starting to get obvious…” Red Tie said
Blue Tie rolled his eyes, “Of course it’s obvious. Are you smashing that?”
“What? No! It’s actually a long story. Remember that day last month that I had to stay back in the office to finish off some work? I walked in on what seemed to be a shagathon in the bathroom. It was Freckles and the receptionist dude.”
Blue Tie’s eyes widened in disbelief. “The receptionist dude! You’ve got to be kidding me! Isn’t she above his pay grade? Wait, I haven’t seen him in a while. Did you report them?”
“Nope! Why would I? Maybe she made him quit, I don’t know.”
“So why is she carrying you in her car every day?”
“I think it’s guilt?” Red Tie giggled. “She has somehow thrown herself into the blackmail victim mode. Sometimes she offers to buy me lunch sef.”
“But you are not blackmailing her, right?”
“Of course not! But she doesn’t seem to know that I’m not or that I won’t! I’m just enjoying the free rides and the driving stress it’s saving me.” Red Tie, said with a winning look on his face.
“Chai, but it’s indirect blackmailing you are doing sha… leaving her to feel that way and accepting her offer to drive you every day, it’s indirect blackmailing.”
“Well, I didn’t ask them to be careless in the office. I might as well reap the fruit of my waka into the bathroom that evening. Having a woman drive you is sweet.”
Blue Tie shook his head, and walked away from Red.
