You can trust in Frankie

I’m Frankie Ventz. Some people think I have issues, others think I’m just a jerk. I’m a straight shooter. My heart is on my sleeve and my thoughts are out in the open. I don’t beat around the bush and I don’t care if you like me or not.

Digital Noir employed me 4 years ago as a designer. I’m a creative, but sometimes this gets me carried away. One drop of coffee and they have to throw me in the murder room under the stairs. I’ve got a lot of problems. I only leave my nook twice a day. Once for coffee, once to get a donut. I’m coeliac, but I don’t care.

I can be a bit particular. Today, Sam put a comma in his blog where a full stop should have been. I almost had a stroke. “The clients won’t trust us anymore if they see that, Sam!”, I said. I read out the sentence and stopped breathing to indicate what 5 lines of text without a full stop can do to the reader.

Sometimes Nick throws cardboard in the general rubbish bin. I try not to say anything, but yesterday I couldn’t take it anymore. I took that bin and poured the contents on his head when he wasn’t looking. He didn’t even flinch, let alone retaliate. This morning there was a penis drawn on my murder room wall. I think it’s Nick’s way of apologising.

Tess visited me in the murder room today. There isn’t any light in there, so she brought me a candle. No matches or candle holder though, but I appreciated the gesture. The candle wax drips onto my hand when I hold it. I’d be lying if I didn’t say I like the burning warmth.

I hope someone new comes to visit me soon. I’m dedicated to working hard and I’ll always be candid.

You can trust in Frankie.

Some people think she has issues, others think she’s just a jerk. We like to say ‘straight shooter’. She NEVER sits on the fence and doesn’t give a damn if you like her or not. One thing’s for sure, you will always know where you stand with Frankie.
