The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Bottom of the Food Chain
In welding school, Tony imagined being on jobs like on the TV commercials: sitting on steel beams above the skyline, sparks flying, the building boom signaling a strong economy.
That didn’t happen. His assignments came from the bottom of the welding food chain: repair jobs for businesses barely hanging on.
He hated this job site: he cleaned it up each night; it was trashed out every morning. Punks. Thank goodness I’ll finish today, he thought. They can keep their discarded tires and toilets and find someone else to abuse.
Only today held a surprise for Tony: flowers in the toilet.
