T. Tense

It’s trying to work in a tacky company when you want to throw a *tanty because of the trickery of twisted managers.

If you’re truthful, articulate and value integrity and have tried to temper your retorts but failed, you might need to troubleshoot or you’ll appear totally tactless and truculent. Your job may be terminated - not temporarily!

If you’ve tallied up too many tempests and transformed from 'team player' to 'turned-off', bullies may tell that they were targeted and tasted your terse tongue.

They may then testify this left them **totalled by your terrible taunts and call it truculent behaviour.

Isle of Skye.
*tanty = tantrum

**a slang expression usually applied to cars eg “He totalled his car when he hit the tree” = the car is bent beyond repair. In this case the person who is totalled had been hurt irreparably.

A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more, no less.

Here tomorrow: Unwanted attention

Here for how to make a clicky signature.

Over at traverselife, I'm spending the month looking at different aspects of bullying.

Dafeenah, The Isle of Skye is oh gosh, words can't do it justice...awesome, stunning, amazing, incredible, historic, dramatic. If you ever have the chance to go, don't hesitate! (but take good stout boots)
Melissa, thankyou so much.
Becky, thanks for dropping by, glad it came back, but I'm a bit concerned, I tell all my students to "back it up" not once but at least in two different places. It's a case of do as I say, don't do as I do. I really MUST remember to back it up...(teflon brain)
Bob, Hi! thanks for dropping in :)
