Zombie Management

by Mike White

Publication Date: 03/06/2017


Bob is a (mostly) obedient wage-slave at Xmart. The store exists some years after a localized zombie outbreak that was then largely contained. The CDC and cooperating government organizations are still mopping up the stragglers that occurred from the outbreak, however, and the occasional zombie walking into a store has become so commonplace Xmart actually has a code for informing employees about it, and they've added it into their training videos for employment.

The occasional flare-up of zombies has also inspired the formation of a militia called the Livers who dutifully drive around town filling and performing their duty to eliminate zombies when the government isn't there to do it themselves.

Given just how commonplace zombies have become, it's to be expected when some people don't take them very seriously anymore.

Bob certainly doesn't. Seriously, how can he look at a bunch of hillbillies like the Livers riding around town with their fake uniforms with a straight face?

The more fun part is having friends play the zombie roles in training videos because of how silly they look.

Besides, the zombie response guide at Xmart is way more useful for hollowing out and putting a cheap tablet in for watching movies while "working." Really, what other use could it have?


Zombie Management is a Dark Comedy Horror Zombie Corporate Satire story like you've never seen.It will fulfill all your soda battle cannon/peanut butter/zombie gore metaphor requirements simultaneously. Fast, funny, and with no lack of ridiculous zany action perfect for anyone who's ever slaved away in the retail industry.
