FFfAW:The local fete

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Phylor. Thank you Phylor for our photo prompt!

Martin had been directing traffic at the local fete for such a long time that he had stopped paying any attention to what was going on.

“Morning, where do you want me to go?”

Without looking up from his clipboard Martin replied, “Take your space at the end of the line in row C.”


“Do you have a wheelchair?”

“No, but you don’t seem to understand that I need…”

Martin sighed and tapped a pen on the piece of paper. “If you want to go into the fate then you will need to park at the end of that row.”

When it came to parking the next vehicle Martin looked up to check the availability of space in row C. He was stunned to see that somebody had parked a horse in the row.

He was less surprised to see his P45 the next day.

  1. Ooh! That’s so unfortunate. He became tired and careless with his job (something that can and does happen with anyone and everyone at some point). That’s too bad, but maybe this will encourage him to seek jobs that’ll keep him a little more active. If that’s possible. Great story with truth!

  2. Lol. I suppose he should’ve paid more attention to what exactly, he was parking. No wonder he got his P45 or pink slip. Great take Angie 🙂
