Veteran bumps off difficult coworker
It was going to be a l-o-n-g day at work.
In the middle of an already stress-ful situation, Vociferous Personality made the mistake of making unreasonable demands.
Seasoned Veteran remained cool—in spite of the difficult coworker’s exasperating behavior.
SV offered a simple solution to the problem presented by VP.
It was Solomonic in its wisdom.
Ever so gently, SV laid the cards on the table. SV would grant VP’s request. In return, VP would be bumped off from the project.
That’s a considerable decrease in income, but VP had no other choice but to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Triple the torment
The idle chatter in the studio is getting hard to ignore.
The last projects of Pretty Boy 1 and Pretty Boy 2 floundered big time. To think, Hot Hunk was thrown in, to beef up (quite figuratively) PB2’s doomed enterprise.
PB1, on the other hand, had Vivacious Vixen on his side. Still PB1 and VV’s joint venture went belly up.
Then, Major Luminary and Popular Partner likewise plummeted into this ravine of failures. Bad luck comes in threes?
Ironically, Ignored Personality and Gifted Thespian hit the jackpot.
It’s called the revenge of the truly talented.
Triangle turned square
Here’s a Geometry lesson.
Flamboyant Insider finally got fed up with Charming Cutie.
FI has been CC’s main benefactor for years. Still, CC had the temerity to fool around. Forever the martyr, FI tolerated CC’s relationship with Steady Sweetheart.
Aside from FI and SS, however, CC somehow found the energy to hook up with a third lover, Transgender Beauty. This love triangle swiftly turned into a square, huh!
That was the final straw.
FI took CC on a trip abroad. CC thought the lavish tour was an anniversary present. Turned out, it was a parting gift. With calm resolve, FI dumped CC.
Guess how FI found out about CC’s extracurricular affair? TB was the one who provided the incriminating SMS evidence to FI.
Is Controversial Celebrity so obsessed with the limelight that handlers would willingly put Clueless Kin in harm’s way?
CC is seldom talked about these days. And being ignored is a fate worse than death, as far as CC is concerned.
So was CK’s latest shenanigan part of CC’s plan to remain relevant?
The publicity stunt, however, has left CK vulnerable to the wolves in cyberspace. It’s like committing hara kiri in the interweb.
From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:
Sultry Siren wanted to watch a movie at the mall. SS thought she’d get mobbed by ardent admirers at the cineplex.
SS wore sunglasses and a hoodie, in a bid to remain incognito.
As the ultimate comeuppance, not a single fan approached SS.
Even the usherette and security guard at the theater failed to recognize SS. Was the disguise that effective?
