A job offer #005

C’s neck and head hurt. She had been sprawled out on the couch in an upside down position since she woke up. Which she thought was three or four hours ago, by vaguely remembering the different shows she had seen. The day had started with C wanting to try things from a new angle, since it had been almost two months and she still had no job, and now she was watching TV upside down. As she turned back to sitting in a more normal position the feeling of phantom needles in her legs and finger tips slowly faded. She remained seated in the sunken in couch until the dizziness went away. Phil had informed her the day before yesterday that she needed to get a job ASAP or he would throw her out. C couldn’t blame him. She was a freeloader as it was.

After the first month of constantly getting a no as the reply to her job applications she surrendered. Since she couldn’t even get a job she didn’t want why even bother, was her train of thought. Once she had thought that particular thought, her quest for a new job had abruptly ended. All attempts from Phil to get C back on the job hunting track was all in vain. C knew this and she knew that it was the reason why she was about to be kicked out. Still, she could hardly care less. She had come to terms with the fact that she was going to become a greaser or rib, sleeping under one of the warm lights. Her compad jingled cheerfully to notify C that she had received a message.

“OUT OF WORK? NO PLACE TO STAY? NEED SOME QUICK MONEY? EXPERINCED PILOT NEEDED TO DELIVER GOODS!” read the title of the message.

WHAT part of “this is a scam” do you not understand?”

“No, no, no! This is not a scam. I know it looks like scam, but trust me you will get your money back.” C said while trying to sneak past Phil.

“Give back my cash card NOW!” yelled Phil and lounged towards C.

She deftly dodged past him and in the same motion tripped him. When had raced back out of his apartment, he was emptied of all positive emotions as he saw C hung up the wall phone.

“I owe you one.” C said and grinned big.
