09:22 pm - The Unbearable Dumbness of Working (a pointless play in one act)
01.  INTERIOR - Colin's cube, 8:30 AM.

         COLIN is sitting at his desk, waiting for the moron he's
         supposed to be training.

         MORON bounces up to COLIN's DESK.

                             MORON
                Colin, I just have to finish
                these two things, and then we
                can get together.

                             COLIN
                Sounds good.


         EXIT MORON.

         FADE OUT.

         CUT TO

02.  INTERIOR - Colin's cube, 10:45 AM.

         MORON bounces up to COLIN's DESK.

                             MORON
                Did you forget about me?

                             COLIN
                Oh, I thought you were going
                to come get me when you were
                done.

                             MORON
                I thought we agreed you'd come
                over when /I/ was done.

                             COLIN
                Oh.

                             MORON
                Duh.  _You're_ the one training
                _me._ I have to make a phone
                call though. Come over when I'm
                finished.

         EXIT MORON.

         COLIN's shakes his head in disbelief, and slumps over.
         His head lands on the keyboard of his PC with a loud THUD.
         The PC beeps, and COLIN lifts his head just in time to see a
         window sporting the words "FLAGRANT SYSTEM ERROR" appear
         on his monitor.

         AEG's head rises over the top of COLIN'S CUBE. 

                              AEG
                Everything alright?

                             COLIN
                Is it ever?

                              AEG
                Happy Monday.

                             COLIN
                Lick me.

         FADE OUT.

And somehow I just know that they'll get more and better advancement opportunities than I do.

That pretty much sums up my day, and I don't even work in a cube farm...I feel your pain, man.

I read your post, and I feel sorry for anybody who has to put up with this crap, especially somebody who doesn't work in an office. Good luck on the job search -- I hope something comes up soon.
