The Boss

 

“Okay, okay, everyone present? Tony Hansfreeze here? Where’s Tony? Clive, where’s Tony? Clive!”

“Yes, sorry, Evelyn’s got a new watch, sorry.”

“Where’s Tony?”

“I don’t know, I saw him five minutes ago, I don’t know.”

“So he’s here but he’s not here?”

“Yeah he’s here but not right here, not here now. He’s here, he’s coming, I think. He was out in the office before. He’s probably got stuck in the kitchen making tea. You know what he’s like with tea.”

“I do know. Tony needs to be here. I need him to hear this.”

“What, Tony, he’s out there, do you want me to get him? He’s just out there. He’s got the tea. He’s here, coming.”

“Yes Simon, if you wouldn’t mind, that would be good. Okay take your seats please, this won’t take long. Not you Simon, get Tony. I need Tony here for this, okay. I need everyone here.”

“Yes boss.”

“Don’t call me boss.”

“Okay.”

“Quiet, please, this is important. Carol, quiet, I want to get started.”

“Sorry, Evelyn’s got a new watch, look.”

“Ticking, is it?”

“Oh yes, it’s ticking non-stop.”

“It’ll stop. Right Tony, right. Tony, take a seat. Tony? Get a seat, mate. Ask him later. I want to get this done and then you can get on. Okay everyone sit down. Everyone seated? Good. Thanks for this at such short notice. Just need to have everyone here, together. Okay, now stay here, I’m just going to go out and shoot myself.”

Very nice! It was just the right length. Seemed like a satire of a real office. I enjoyed it!
