Changing paths

Her boss looked up from the letter.  ‘You’re resigning?’

Jane nodded her head.

‘Why?’

‘I’m not cut out for advertising.’

‘But you’re good at it.’

‘But its ... not for me.’

‘So what’ll you do instead?’

‘Go back to waitressing.’

‘Waitressing?  Your ambition is to skivvy as a waitress?’

‘My ambition is to be happy.’

‘And you think you’ll find joy scraping by on minimum wage?  That’s insane.’

‘No more insane than working in a job I loathe.  I enjoyed working in a cafe.’

‘Just think of all the income you’ll lose.’

‘I managed before.  I can do it again.’




A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

I love the way she follows what she wants instead of what others think she should want. Nicely done
