Tanya: Tick. Tock.

48 years he'd been with the company, the vast majority of his days. And nights. And weekends. He'd been a kid in the stockroom, hauling boxes. Gave them his whole life, working his way up the hard way. Promotions, advances, finally on the board of trustees, and now he was shoved away by a bunch of no-nothing kids. Pensioned out like garbage.

He pulled the cheap gold watch out of his pocket. Already stopped. He chucked it into the road and watched a Chevy truck run over it, crushing it into shrapnel. Just let them try to survive without him.
