Rank (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

Becca twists in her chair to accept the incoming call. Naturally, when she’s got reams of medical records to index, cross-index, Bates-stamp, and prepare  for the boss to send to opposing counsel by end of day, the caller is just another idiot who believes his life story will convince her he’s entitled to a free lawyer.

She finally gets rid of him and turns back to her work and her deadline, only to hear Jane pipe up, “I’ve always hated those calls the worst.”

My god, does the woman have two cents about everything?

“Well, you don’t rank high enough to worry about it here,” Becca snaps. She sees the shocked hurt on Jane’s face and feels a surge of angry satisfaction.

  1. That call really got to her why did have to take it out on a minion? Having having worked in offices for many years I quite understand the pecking order needing to be established as I look on from my private office with a view of the sky!
