Default Chicken fried steak

Squiggy was the manager of a meat plant in felson. Nobody capitalizes felson, and he didn't really care about his job. Bout anything, really. He showed up, flirted with the girls, and got the hogs through to the slaughter and then through processing. Not a hard haul, per say, but it was management.

He tried to talk to some of the female employees and use his position to get dates, but he was rude. That came from his abusive brother beating on the boy. He came at Squiggy in the night and left marks. Maybe one day he'd fight back but it was pretty weak stuff, he's 16 and Dustin was 25 but still little, small boned. Wimpy but lanky so that bastard could hit you with a 6' meat pool noodle arm.

Squiggy was growing, and Squiggy was looking past all that. He had a good job and liked the chicken fried steak lunches that the meat plant provided for the employees. They were fried up in grease and soon to please. Those hair netted ladies sure could cook some collards, corn bread, and chicky steak.

Is there more to this story? Who is Squiggy? What happened to him? Why did you write that? I’m baffled cause it’s damn good writing and style...

I thought it was an excerpt from a novel (and I’m being serious). Very stylized. Bukowski or Hunter Thompson and Cormac...
