Succinctly Yours Week 7

Grandma's Goulash at Succinctly Yours hosts this microfiction meme. 

Each week she posts a photographic prompt for inspiration and the challenge is to write a story using no more than 140 characters or words. 

Below is this week's photo followed by my offering.

Whaddya mean, you’ve fallen in the pit and you can’t get out! Use your hydraulics and get back on track or you’ll be breaking rocks by hand!

  1. Talk about providing motivation. Bosses are good at that!

    My Succinct: Mama

  2. Well, that's one to motivate someone! Great take.

  3. WHOA! What a taskmaster! AYE AYE, sir!

  4. And so he should ;-)
    Nice one.

  5. Perfect match to the photo!

  6. "Ive fallen..." This had me rolling when I thought of the commercial!

  8. Sounds like one of my grandson's bosses!

  9. Creative bend to this week's photo. I like it!

  10. That's a hard-nosed boss! But he does have his own unique way of motivating his employees.

  11. I half expected to see Lassie pop in, as this funny and fun take of yours reminds me of a good old-fashioned "Timmy's In the Well" story! LOL!

  12. Hi J.L. I like your header picture with its pretty flowers.

    Mean boss, huh?
