A Job Well Done – Friday Fictioneers

Well, good Hump Day to you all!  It’s that middle of the week time where we get a great photo from our fearless leader, Rochelle, and are asked to write a 100-word story, with a beginning, middle and end.  Sounds easy, eh?  Well, to tell the truth, sometimes it is, and sometimes it isn’t!  But it always is worth the effort.  One learns how to cut the fluff and get to the nitty-gritty in hopefully a way that pleases the reader.  A huge thank you to Priorhouse for the use of her photo this week.  Do join in, if you feel you are up to the challenge.  Just click on the blue frog below to add your link.

A Job Well Done

She moved around the table making sure all was arranged functionally as well as beautiful.  A properly set service made the difference.  Satisfied, she left the foyer to check on other duties needing her attention.

“I just don’t understand why you care so much about this crappy job of yours.  How can you demean yourself by setting up coffee when you can be doing much greater things?”

“Why is it demeaning to care about doing a job well? Taking pride in what you do is not about the what you do, it’s about the how you choose to do it.”

    • Thanks, Alicia. So very true. If we feel shame, others will feel it and then… However, if we feel price, there will still be those who look down, but most will feel it and respect it.


  1. Dear Dale,
    I’m with Alicia’s comment above. AND … all that have come before me. I love this arrangement in the photograph. It’s the order and tidiness that captivated me. Mmmm … have I exposed my tendancy to be a bit of a neat person? YIKES … I’m getting better though. I don’t fuss too much anymore. It’s the aching bones. Thanks for that Mother Nature. : )
    I’m sure others have loved your write on this one, mi amiga. It’s good.
    Happy Sunday
    Izzy 😎
