Photocopying his butt at the office Christmas party sounded like a cheap thrill at the time, but what does Johnson tell his boss when Mr. Sanford finds those copies on his desk the next day?

In the excerpt below, Johnson discovers why he was called into Mr.
Sanford’s office …


Resisting the urge to wipe my sweaty palms off on my slacks, I ask, “Yes

“Have a seat,” Mr. Sanford says, interrupting me. He motions to the
overstuffed leather chair, the only place to sit that isn’t behind his
desk. Like a puppet whose strings are cut, I plop down onto the edge of the chair. A look of irritation flickers across his face. Fingering the
folder, he shakes his head sadly. “Johnson, Johnson, Johnson.”

“Yes.” With a nod, I confirm that’s me. The triple-name play, not a good
sign. Now that he can’t see my hands, I smooth them down the front of my
pants. I suspect he wants me to ask about the folder, so I don’t. If
he’s going to prolong the agony for me, I don’t have to roll over and
take it.

Without a word, he passes it to me. I know I’m just another lowly peon
to him, some upstart kid in the advertising department, so unimportant
he has to call me Johnson because he doesn’t remember my first name. So
when he tells me, “Take a look in there for me,” I know it’s not some
impending business decision he wants me to review, or a major campaign
he wants my opinion on, because that’s not who I am to him. This is the
end of my career at Sanford and Associates, LLC. With a mix of
trepidation and fear, I take the folder and hold it in my lap.

I don’t want to look inside.

As if he wants to give me some privacy, he stands and comes around from
behind his desk. Past me, to close the door. That small gesture alone
tells me this might get nasty. The moment he’s out of view, I open the
folder and grimace at the first of several black and white photocopies
staring back at me.

Someone’s ass, flattened against the copier’s glass. My ass.
