Flushing it All Away

PHOTO PROMPT © Trish Nankivell

“It’s cheap, industrial grade sandpaper bought in bulk.”

“Yes, but it is a cost on our budget, and someone is stealing it.”

I shook my head in disbelief.  Why would anybody steal the cheap toilet paper from the office bathroom?  But the evidence was there.

“Ok, lock it up even tighter.  And I thought keeping pens in stock would be hard…”

We found out soon enough that it didn’t matter how secure it was since Mr. Thornbill had access to all of the keys.

He also made over $200,000 a year.

I never figured out why he flushed his career.

Years ago someone at work was stealing TP. I don’t think they caught the thief, btu everyone knew the person doing it most likely made 3 times what the average American made. I always wondered why they risked their super high salary and nice career for the nastiest TP on the face of the Earth…. (If you didn’t notice, there is a lock on the roll in the photo…)

      I agree, I would much rather go with squeezably soft! And, yep, some of the richest people are some of the cheapest. You can’t take it with you, so why not enjoy it while you’re here?
