I love the start to this story! I can't wait to see what other writers do with this setting.

This journey into the `Deep South` was delightful, in a hellish sorta way. :)

"Sure, corporate gave me a flaming whip for whenever they’re slacking on the line, but I can only lash so many employees before my arm starts gettin’ sore." I love this line! There is something incredibly funny about a guy complaining about his arms getting sore from whipping his employees. It is an interesting character that you threw out there. He is in hell and in a miserable situation, but at the same time he has a personality that deserves it. I am really looking forward to see where this goes.

I couldn't stand molding all those screaming souls into patties, either, man.

I am thrilled and impressed that someone has taken a page out the Inferno and told a story through a poem. Great job Leah!

Oh goodness, these are simply wonderful, in the most disturbing and hilarious way. It' hard to be genuinely funny when writing, and both of these entries pulled off damnation with a comedic atmosphere. Great job, I can't wait to see where else this topic goes!

I love that Leah used a poem to tell her story! Joe's story is wild, I had to go back and read it twice. These stories are all too much, I can't wait to see what the next one will be!

I am digging the latest installment. It has a very No Exit vibe to it

I can totally relate to this installment! Everyone's had that awful regular that thinks everyone loves them. Great job Deo!

Stefanie! This installment is great. working a help center in hell would be the worst!

Damnation and Minimum Wage brought back so many memories of, um, yesterday. I'm sure I'll be stifling laughter more than once from behind the cash register or while running food today. Thank you for that.

The latest entry is more than a little horrifying. I think I like it a lot which worries me...

Movie theaters are already disgusting places. This last story isn't helping.

This is so wonderfully gross! I wanted to stop reading so many times, but I just couldn't...a sure sign of a successful piece :)

I absolutely love the 6th installment! It's incredibly funny how much Liz resembles just the ordinary office worker, in the middle of hell, if that makes any sense. Something weird is happening to everyone, but she is just tired and bored and wants to get home to have some vegetable time. The "Buttered Popcorn" turned my stomach upside down. (I think I might have found yet another reason not to eat popcorn in cinemas now.) Very grotesque in a very creative way!

I love the variety of stories we are seeing on this page! Each individual "Retail Hell" really comes alive!

"If they could stop shimmying around like epileptic serpents" will be my favorite phrase for quite a while...

These stories come together well to make a coherent whole. This is my first day on the site, and I'm surprised to see how well subsequent writers worked with each other. Taken as a whole, these stories demonstrate the futility of trying to live on minimum wage in a world not made for it. The conceit of turning it into a horror story is great satire.
