John had butterflies in his stomach as he hurriedly got ready to head out of the house.
This was his first day at his new job, and it wasn’t exactly what he had been looking for, but beggars can’t always be choosers can they.
The office was located on the wrong side of town, a drive that was more miles than he would like, but this morning it was at least a smooth commute, and he hoped that he could show that he was well capable of doing the job.
He liked the people that he was going to be working with, but at the same time John knew from the interview that it was going to be hard to get on with his boss.
This was a person who as far as he could tell was a self indulgent extrovert, who also apparently didn’t use deodorant, which was easy to tell because he smelled rancid, the kind of body smell that made you squirm.
Still, a job is a job, and John put a spring in his step as he walked through the doors of the office on his first day.
