STEVE- hi carl,
receives no answer
STEVE- I noticed you put me down for the day shift on the 25th
STEVE- That’s Christmas man, I have a family, a sick daughter…
Carl smiles in a sly manner
CARL- so what?
CARL- What the heck am I supposed to do about it? Cure cancer?
STEVE- no carl,* takes a deep breath* can’t you just switch my shift?
CARL- I’m sorry
STEVE- but this might be daughters last Christmas…
CARL- I don’t really care.
STEVE- I can’t work during the day on Christmas, just give me the night shift… please?
CARL- no I wont, Chris has that shift and he is actually a hard working employee, unlike you.
Steve falls on his knees
STEVE- just switch the shifts man… *desperate tone*
CARL- nothing I want to or can do, so drop it.
STEVE- please *almost crying*
Carls smirk enlarges as he almost begins to chuckle
CARL- ok, I’ll tell you what I’ll do…. Your fired
CARL- didn’t you hear me? YOU… ARE… FIRED!
CARL- you heard me, so get out! Now!
STEVE- *breaks down crying*
*Fade into black*
