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.

Waiting for news, and all the dashboard boxing, had left the bossman with an appetite. He pulled into a Super King’s Biggie Burger and ordered a giganto meal. He was especially looking forward to the pound of fries. The food at SKBB was lackluster, but for three and half bucks he got the aforementioned pound of fries, the giganto burger (which had a total of four buns, three quarter-pound patties, and two varieties of flavored processed cheese melted over every single slab of meat-like substance), and a thirty-two ounce soda. For a quarter more he could upsize to the sixty-four ounce drink. As a bonus for upsizing his burger would come with three slices of bacon, tenderly strewn across the melted cheese of every burger patty.
Nine slices of bacon!
It was quite a bargain and well worth the stomach cramping and horrendous gas he’d suffer through later.
He paid for his meal at window one and waited his turn at window two. His mouth salivated and his butt flinched. Then his phone beeped, alerting him of a text message.
Now? Really? Just when he was about to get his gloriously colossal giganto burger? Great. It was going to be a confirmed sighting of the illusive codename: The Bull and it would ruin the lovely meal he’d cultivated here.
He read the text message.
East Side Branch is happy to report continued success in the monitoring of the whereabouts of subject: the Bull. Current position: Price Killers Wholesale Superstore. Additional monitoring success for subject: Miss Adams. The former secretary of Northside Branch continues to accompany primary subject.
The bossman was still yelling the word “bitch” in rapid fire succession when the SKBB employee opened window number two. After she handed the giganto meal to the bossman she went to the restroom and cried.
