Prompt: File

Escape From Building C

"Where’s the Richardson file?"

"On your desk."

"I just looked, it’s not there."

"Sir, I’m sure–"

"No more excuses! These things don’t just grow legs and walk away!"

Getting downstairs is going to be tough. I’m too short to reach the elevator button, but the stairs are each about as tall as I, and if I stumble my papers are all over the floor. I’m formulating a plan to hide on the custodian’s cart when I’m lifted into the air

"Who stuffed a file behind this potted plant? Hey, wait a minute... what are these things sticking out the bottom?"
