Tales from 2020: Undercover Boss

Dusk, March 7, 2020. Pre-lockdown.

Wind-sheared and worn-out I surveyed the scene, silently counting down to the end of the shift.

A sound from behind snapped me back. “You the boss?”

I turned around and it was one of the back-office ladies, no more than 5' tall and staring right at me. “Y’know, the boss — working with the workers.”

No clue.

“You never seen Undercover Boss? I swear you the CEO or something — you taller than everyone else here.”
