Sunken eyes, hunched shoulders and a shuffle for a walk, Mark Docherty nicknamed Doc, was a likeable chap but had been drummed down by years of habitual work and a working environment that was driven by "just get it done". Doc had worked for 7 years, joined as an apprentice and sat through the NVQ training and the continuing jokes about his position and a general lack of respect from within. He'd seen a modest increase in his take home pay but nothing in line with his ever increasing responsibility and expanding knowledge. He was covering more and more ground, with days leaving him sleepy and sneezy. Doc felt a loyalty to the company after all they had given him the opportunity, the chance to make a difference. As a bashful young teenager they had handed him that future.
After a particularly difficult week with grumpy clients and dopey sub-contractors, Doc took to social media to vent his anger. The future needs to be different.
Whilst engaging in a debate that he was thrown into, the appeal of change was too much. Doc's mind was made up, the CV was drawn, the email typed and with one click of his mouse Doc changed colour, as Phil Collins would say, "he could feel it coming in the air".
Change was here, it just took that initial step, that initial press or click.
So what of Doc now, Astronaut, Dentist, Lawyer, Painter.... No, although this is fiction it has a huge element of realism to it. Doc is still an engineer, but at least he works at Disney now.
