A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Hands down, she's coolest boss ever

by jl333 on June 18, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Started another one of my part time jobs today. I have a super cool boss, who is extremely kick back and literally goes with the flow. As we were filing papers, she mentioned what a beautiful day it was. She then asked me if I ever take time off during the week to do fun stuff. I told her I have plenty of time for fun, and that my friends just happen to be out jet skiing today. Her response? Well then, we'll get you out of here early so you can enjoy the sunshine and jet ski with your friends! Wow, pretty cool for my first day.
