This is Part 2 of my Mid-Life Crisis series.
The line of those I had served was long, and stretched back decades.
In it were Spirits.
They came in all sizes, sometimes in teams and other times alone. Many were anticipated; others were not.
Some of their names were Expectations, Wild Hope, Love, Betrayal, Abortion, Regrets, Study Hard, College Success, Workaholism, Lethal Client Secrets, Lost Youth, Sexism, Racism, Compromise, Mo' Success, Great Dick, Endless Dating, Tired O'Dating, Adoption, Wee Bits O'Fun, Middle Age, Parenting A'Loony Teen, Burnout, Grim Reaper, Irrational Guilt, Mo Burnout, and Loneliness.
Every now and then, Dumb Luck would show up, but she hadn't been around in awhile. Now at the head of the line was Stagnation.
Like some of the others, this mofo was a Customer Service Rep's nightmare, and like the larger Spirits served before him, I could not see behind him. I'd come to hate this friggin' job. Problem was, it was the only one around.
"What can I do for you, biatch," I hissed.
"Nothing," Stagnation hissed back. "Absolutely nothing. Do that, and I'll be satisfied."
I glanced at my supervisor, Life.
This was Part 2 in my series, Mid-Life Crisis.
