When it came to running his company’s booth at the triennial Trade Show and Exposition, Morty was the master.

He would arrange for all of the supplies and equipment to be delivered. Everything showed up in the right place at the right time, nothing gone missing.

He staffed the booth with the most knowledgeable salespeople and filled the reception area with beautiful models to attract passersby.

Sales of his company’s Clothing for Clergymen would always spike as a result of his efforts...and yet, Morty never got Promotion One.

His own fault. The title on his business card read, “Chief Exhibitionist.”

[The theme of Weekly Challenge #20 at the 100 Word Stories Podcast is exposition.]
