Overtime Crime, Part 4

| Working | July 1, 2015

(My good friend works for a commercial cleaning company, works long hours, and has recently moved, so I hardly get to see her anymore. I tell her they work her too hard, but she accepts it, usually. Yesterday we were finally able to get together for a nighttime movie. We have just purchased our tickets and are about to go into the theater. Her phone rings.)

Friend: “Hello?”

Coworker: “Hi, [Friend]? Are you still in the area?”

Friend: “Yeah, but I’m about to see a movie… Why?”

Coworker: “Well, so, [Client] from earlier called back. Apparently we forgot to move her furniture back inside and she’s demanding we do it tonight before it rains.”

(There’s an expectant pause on the other end.)

Friend: “…Yeah?”

Coworker: “Yeah, so I need you to go back and let the techs into the office for their equipment, in about half an hour. [Other Coworker] wants to go home.”

Friend: “…I just told you I’m about to go into a movie. I bought the ticket already.”

Coworker: “Well, yeah, but… can you leave in the middle of the movie and go let the techs in?”

Friend: “…No?”
