Story One: "The Office Manager"
Story Two:"A Nice Family"
"The Office Manager"
An office manager's job can be rather routine, and the course of a day's work, in the office, quite predictable. On the other hand, the workplace can be filled with daily backbiting and a host of odious schemes to maintain favor with the boss. The heroine of this tale, however, is more than up for the challenges presented. She has special intellectual gifts, and she'll use them to move skillfully around office "snakes," "fakes," and "rakes." All the while, she tries to find stable relationships outside the job. It is in that arena that she'll make some very shocking, even life altering, discoveries.
"A Nice Family"
Sometimes it just doesn't pay to be nice. The entire clan of the Nies family, in Berkshire, proves to be the embodiment of niceness, as the story-title denotes. The fact is, though, they put themselves in position, time and again, to be tricked, misused, and even abused by certain mean-spirited townsfolk. But, the head of the Nies family, although beset with the same intellectual deficits of his kin, evolves a plan to give the town what it deserves. The good news is that no one gets hurt--not really--and people friendly to the Nieses, like 6-year-old Trina and her mom, may even get a "nice" reward.
