A Cautionary Note

Cast: Boss, Employee, Support, Customer

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Boss and Employee are stood either side of the table. Boss is holding paper. Employee has his hand raised slightly.}
Boss: That's the fifth tech support guy whose killed himself today! What's this "Portable Monopoly" I see scrawled in all these suicide notes?
Employee: Sir, it's a product that resolves all the very real problems with our Gameboy Advance.

Panel 2

{Boss puts the paper away. Employee points upwards.}
Boss: Why don't they kill themselves after work? Or in one of the designated suicide areas?
Employee: Perhaps letting them wear jeans would raise morale.

Panel 3

{Scene change. Support is sat at a desk, looking at a computer with a headset on. Customer at other end.}
Customer: {headset} My Goddamned fucking GBA doesn't fucking work now, you fuckers!
Support: Alright, sir. Why don't you tell me what happened?
Customer: {headset} I'd just cracked it open, I was stripping some wires, and I was about to fill it with molten metal.
