Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).
Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

“Huh,” Mr. Jones said, his memory fading. The sickly gloom of the craft superstore fluorescents seeped back into his field of vision; antiseptic and sterile.
“Found him. He’s in the bathroom.”
Mr. Jones’s shoulder dropped and his head lulled. When he spoke, his face made no attempt to hide the sour expression.
“Yeah. So we gonna go get him or what?”
“In the bathroom? No thanks. I’ll wait until he comes out.”
“I don’t think he’s coming out for a while.”
“A further indicator that I do not want to go in there.”
Tanya shook her head and put her hands on her hips. “Are you seven? He’s not in there shedding a brown pound, he’s taking measurements.”
Mr. Jones cocked his head to the side and flared his eyes. “Like that’s better.”
“Oh. I see. We’re in junior high now. I’m the one that gets to make the juvenile comments, remember? He’s in there measuring stuff as part of his douchey cost cutting initiative. So grow up and let’s go get him.”
Mr. Jones sighed and they marched toward the restrooms.
