    Tanya Jones, one of the Masters of the Universe, hit the misery trifecta: fever, chills and nausea. Apparently, she was allergic to the woolen earflaps that were supposed to protect her from the glacial temperatures of the walk-in freezer.

    She grabbed a side of curling mystery meat from a rusty hook. It wouldn’t budge. She raised a shaky arm up and back, while marveling at her ability to wield a cleaver despite her bleak physical outlook. With the last of her strength, she hacked off enough meat for tonight’s dinner.

    Bert sighed impatiently. No matter how many negative assessments he filed in Tanya’s personnel jacket, there was nothing that would cause her to leave off hibernating in the restroom.

    Dinner service was in less than four hours! Her station was in disarray. Bert dashed off a reminder in his little black book:

    TJ – reduce remuneration.

    • As Sharon pulled the curling earflap down over her exposed ear, she started to experience a bleak feeling that this year’s assessment of her work would not be as the last; that assessment was like hitting the Trifecta at the racetrack! This year in the office it was as though everyone was getting ready for a glacial hit similar to what the Titanic experienced. The workforce seems to have just gone to their cubicles to hibernate, as the managers were all of a sudden the masters of the world and had inexplicably become allergic to those that worked under them. The remuneration for tasks completed this year was going to cause anarchy amongst the rank and file. Sharon thought to herself, there was no getting around it; the world had gone insane.
