The Stone Roses Wannabe

This is an activity from the A215 Creative Writing Course that I’m doing with the OU. The idea is to invent an unreliable narrator who is antagonistic towards a colleague, but in doing so hints at the fact that he is envious (7.6 part 2).

There he is again with his false smile and false platitudes, the Stone Roses wannabe. Someone should tell him that it’s the twenty-first century, and that his hairstyle is totally out-dated. I had to work with him on a new project, at work, last week, which involved an analysis and overview of existing work procedures. We worked alongside another two people, from a different department, and we all got on famously. I do think, however, that my ideas were the best, but they went along with his ideas; I guess his team leader status carried more authority, and got him listened to. He really is a brown nose creep: comes in early, works through his lunch, and stays late. I guess that’s the way to get on in this company. Fuck that! I’d rather be normal.

About Sean

I live in my own thoughts, chat to imaginary friends, and survive primarily on Snickers and Nescafe. I work full-time and study part-time for a BA in English Literature with the OU. Home is the North West of England, and my heroes are those authors that can make miracles out of paper and words…… “The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” – Mark Twain.
