It was totally unfair!\ \ Bob: Yeah, but it's too late now. As much as I hate to say it, Jessie's in charge, and what she says goes.\ \ Joe: So that's it? You're just gonna sit there and take it? What happened to the guy that made me wear a monkey mask my first week here? What happened to the man who threw lit cigarettes at me two weeks ago for no apparent reason? \ \ Bob: Look, I don't want to put MY job on the line. This place is cake, and I'm not going to lose it.\ \ Joe: Well, Steve is my friend, and I'm going to try to talk Jessie into changing her mind.\ \ Bob: Well, well, well. The little mouse has a set after all. This should be interesting.\ -------------------\ (Back office, jessie at desk, Joe walks in.)\ Jessie: Can I help you Joe?\ \ Joe: Well, you can start by getting Steve back here.\ \ Jessie: Excuse me?\ \ Joe: You didn't need to fire him.\ \ Jessie: How do you know? Do you know how many times I walked in on him doing nothing? Or that he just stood around recently when the store was an absolute disaster? \ \ Joe: Look, you don't understand...\ \ Jessie: No, YOU don't understand. I am in charge here, and what I say goes. I try to be as fair as I can, but lately the three of you have been acting like children. You saw what I did yesterday. Don't think that you are not expendable. Are we understood?\ \ Joe: Yes ma'am. (Joe leaves, returns to Bob)\ \ Joe: Did you hear?\ \ Bob: Every word. Here, I thought you might want this. (Hands Joe a bag)\ \ Joe: What's this?\ \ Bob: Your testicles. They rolled on out here, and I thought you might need them.\ \ Joe: I hate you.\ \ Bob: You know I'm your hero. (Walks off)\ -----------------------------\ }
