Transitions, by Russell Conover

Bob had been happy in his previous job. However, it had been temporary, and he was now at the end. Making transporting devices to and from Pluto was intriguing, but he needed something with more real-world usefulness. Then an idea struck.

Bob talked to his boss about TESTING the devices, rather than just making them, and she was gung-ho. Bob eagerly strapped himself into one device, twitching at the chance for interplanetary travel, but sadly, the machine launched him into space, losing him forever.

“Note to self,” Bob thought. “Read the job description, including fine print, FULLY before committing.”
