Dream job turns into a nightmare for insider

/ 12:20 AM August 13, 2017

Many thought it was a dream job for Inexperienced Insider. Turned out it was a nightmare for everyone concerned, including II.

Not a few colleagues were unhappy in the workplace. The team members labored for weeks—only to find out that all their efforts were for naught.

Exasperated, Popular Coworker stormed out of the joint. II threatened to follow suit, but was prevailed upon by the higher-ups to stay put.


Certain legal ramifications prevented II from supporting PC’s defiant crusade.

Incompatibility test

Perhaps II should be thankful. II is still gainfully employed, unlike Charming Cutie who was booted out of a project.

Observers thought CC had the job in the bag. After all, Secretive Coworker is easily smitten with physical allure. But then again, SC might not be into someone who is similarly swishy. Incompatible much?

Is that the reason why CC’s replacement, Scruffy Stud, is dripping with testosterone?

Is CC too wan and willowy for SC, who prefers ’em rough and gruff?


Triumph of the will


Seems there is brewing tension between Wealthy Benefactor and Rebellious Kin.

RK and WB don’t see eye-to-eye on a number of issues—primarily, the latter’s choice of partner, Scandalous Luminary.

To put it mildly, RK detests SL with a passion.

Thing is, SL can do no wrong, as far as WB is concerned.

In a fit of anger, RK stunned WB, by asking for a slice of the inheritance pie. WB was heartbroken.

Perhaps RK merely wanted to safeguard the clan’s coffers from SL?

In this corner

Years back, Sultry Siren cautioned Gorgeous Lover not to get too close to Handsome Hottie.

HH apparently swings both ways. SS was worried that GL might end up as one of HH’s victims. GL dutifully steered clear of HH.

Seems HH has a new prospect these days. HH was spotted being extra chummy with Chatty Personality. HH made sure he had CP all to himself during a trip abroad.

HH cornered CP!

Not-so-holy terror

From the Inquirer tabloid Bandera:

Despite advancing years, Seasoned Beauty hasn’t mellowed a bit. SB is still as feisty as ever.

SB’s favorite pastime is to terrorize naive newbies on the set. SB is particularly fond of newcomers who are clueless about the craft.

One fine day, SB thought of putting the heat on Hunky Neophyte.

After messing up a simple scene, HN got quite a tongue-lashing from SB.

Alas, the trauma pushed HN to make more mistakes—delaying the shoot further.
