I like this story quite a lot, Paul, but I'm really not sure about the ending. It seems to me to be just too abstract, too internalized in a way that feels like reflection taken long after the events of the story. One of the strengths of this piece is its immediacy, its sense of a spontaneous event taking place in the immediate present, but containing all the content of your history with this place, with this job. I would suggest that your ending have that same immediacy.


Um, didn't I see you at work yesterday?
