The year is 2135. I’m was my way to work in my flying blue volvo. The work I did was really boring, but I felt like it was a necessity. The world needs secretaries and there’s nothing we can do about that. We tried making robots to take over those jobs for us. Unfortunately it didn’t work.
The robots malfunctioned because the bosses got irritated and threw coffee at them. After multiple incidents containing coffee, they have decided to drop the robots. So people like me have to do the hard work of serving the perfect coffee to the boss and to handle the orders. We had waged a war against another company so I had a tough time following.
The boss wanted multiple cameras with really sensitive microphones outside the opposing company’s building. That way we would have gotten our hands on sensitive information that we could use against them. To make sure our information was secure we had a computer ,with everything sensitive on, safe in an aluminium covered vault that way they can’t use laser goggles to check out our information. We made sure to have all the information on the computer in the vault. That way they won’t get anywhere by hacking our systems and computers. Even my computer has some security just because I’m the boss’s secretary.
After a long day of running around the building listening to my boss I was finally able to go home and sleep. Well that was the plan. But on my way home suddenly the power went. The whole city turned black. No flying cars. No lights around. Everything was pitch black. The whole city was doomed. Without power or technology we couldn’t survive. Fortunately for me I watched a video of my grandparents from the 21th century. They showed me how they survived in the wild without any technology at all except for the camera they brought. All they had was their bare hands.
Watching that video showed me how I could survive, but I wasn’t able to help the others in the city. There were some kind of forcefield that blocked power in our city which made it impossible for other people to come and save us. Because of that incident I lost my family and everyone I cared about. The only survivors from our city were me and 4 others. We weren’t able to get a job because we didn’t have anything at all. No one would help us. Because of that I don’t have any purpose in life and writing this factual story is the last thing I am doing before I’m taking my own life.
