Mind Games…


He felt such deep shame within him.

Shame that his friends would mock him if they ever got to know that he was doing such demeaning job.

Washing toilets! Cleaning up for women.

As a man raised to believe that women are just an inch less than a chattel, it was an insult to have to wash the ladies wash room and to serve them.

His thoughts were that the ladies were equally making mockery of him. He felt that their sniggers and giggles were all aimed at unmanning him.

Even the female supervisor always complained on how poorly he did his job or how slow he was.

How he disliked those her kohl darkened eyes. He always tortured her the most in his mind.

In his mind, he beat them up several times over in a day and enjoyed the mind games that he played, taunting them until they begged for mercy.

On days he got carried away with his warped imagination, he decided to contaminate the water in their dispenser with his urine.

It was his turn to snigger as he watched them take cups of water to drink and natter as they normally do and each time, he went back to his shared quarters feeling satisfied.

Unfortunately, his small-mindedness failed to remember that the tiny pin-prick cameras picked up every little detail that went on in the office.

When he was discovered, he really got to feel the pinches, jabs and painful barbs of his so-called weaker opponents and the iron-faced Eunuch taught him a lesson by that he would not be forgetting in a hurry.

  1. That karma will get you every time! Interesting story line and thanks so much for the mention! Hubby said, you were just practicing your writing, right? And we laughed cause he knows I would never put it out there if it weren’t true — putting up with each other for so many years is what makes it the best!

  2. Gross that he pee’d where the woman got their drinking water. Sometimes discrimination is learned when we are young, but it can be unlearned. I hope perhaps the camera’s catching him, will help him to change his views against woman.

  3. Hmm. I’ve played those mind games before. But I was witty enough not to get caught. But I’m a different person now. That’s rather petty and childish. Still, no one’s self-worth should be diminished. But this sounds like a lack of self-confidence this time. So sad that he had to learn a hard lesson… Thanks for the read Jacqueline! 🙂
