The use of computers and the introduction of the internet rendered office supplies nearly obsolete. But, still, every business had a room full. I took off my lab coat and donned a cheap suit. I bought as much of the unwanted stock as possible. People were happy to rid themselves of their unnecessary junk. At least, that was before the Incident. Now, no more electronic devices or internet.
It doesn’t bother me. I’m sitting pretty with warehouses full of office supplies.
People wonder, “How did it happen?” They will never know.
I made sure not to leave a paper trail.
This story is my contribution to “Friday Fictioneers,” a weekly challenge hosted by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff Fields. With the help of a photo prompt to inspire, we’re to write a 100-word story. The photo this week was provided by Jan Wayne Fields.
