Invasion of Privacy


Carl hated his boss. Everything about him drove Carl crazy. Carl had just graduated from
high school, and this was his first full- time job. He tried hard to be a good employee, but Mr.
Harris was impossible to please and seemed to take every opportunity to make sure that Carl
knew he was lucky to have a job. He seemed to make an example of Carl, complaining about the
quality of his work and even making fun of Carl’s occasional stuttering, which always got worse
when Mr. Harris was around.
Carl was determined to find a way to get even with Mr. Harris. The thought was the only
thing that kept him going; it was on his mind day and night. He didn’t know much about Mr.
Harris’s private life, except he was married and had a daughter about Carl’s age—he couldn’t
imagine how miserable her life must be. He would have to find out more about her.
Tabitha hated her stepfather. Everything about him drove Tabitha crazy. Tabitha had just
graduated from high school and was trying to find a full-time job. She tried hard to be a good
daughter, but he was impossible to please and seemed to take every opportunity to make sure
that Tabitha knew she was lucky to have a house to live in. He was always telling Tabitha that
she was just like her mother and would never amount to anything. He e ven made fun of her
occasional stuttering, which always got worse when he was around.
Tabitha was determined to find a way to get even with her stepfather. The thought was the
only thing that kept her going; it was on her mind day and night. She didn’t know much about
her stepfather’s work life, except that he owned a small printing business nearby and had an
employee about her age—she couldn’t imagine how miserable his life must be. She would have
to find out more about him.
Carl was spending his time after work at a small cafe near Mr. Harris’s home where he
hoped to meet the daughter and start a relationship with her. He could just imagine the look on
Mr. Harris’s face when she would bring him home and introduce him as her new boyfriend. Of
course, Carl would act surprised to find out that her father was his boss, but he would get a lot of
satisfaction out of Mr. Harris’s reaction.

Carl looked around the cafe and wondered if Mr. Harris’s daughter could be sitting here
right now. It was possible since it was so close to her home. He noticed a girl nearby, also
looking around the room. He wondered if that was her. Wouldn’t that be quite a coincidence? he
thought.
