Man’s voice Storms-R-Us, this is your friendly local Weather God speaking, my name is Bob Thunder, how may I help you today?
Bob Katrijn, is that you?
Bob Katrijn, please speak up, there is a lot of background noise.
Katrijn BOB. I have a category 3 thunderstorm here that wasn’t on the project log. You wouldn’t know anything about it, would you?
Bob A category 3 you say? Let me look that up…
I’m having trouble finding it in the log. Do you mind if I pop you on hold for a minute?
Katrijn In fact I do, and you will do no such thing, I thank you Bob.
I will stay on the line while you have a look.
Bob [sounding slightly unnerved] Right… Let’s see… Hm, it’s not in here. Let’s get the schedule for the 2pm to 3pm out and have a look…
Katrijn It won’t be on there.
Bob WHAT? You need to speak up, I can’t hear you.
Katrijn IT. WON’T. BE. ON. THE. SCHEDULE.
Bob [sounding nervous] Eh… It’s not… How did you know?
Katrijn DID YOU COMPLETE A PARAGRAPH 501(c)(4) REQUEST AND SUBMITTED IT TO THE SCRUTINY BOARD PRIOR TO DESIGNING THE ATMOSPHERIC INTERVENTION WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING?
Bob Well, I have no reason to believe that is not the case considering the current AI is leveraging effect going forwards. No AI can be operational without the required synergistic authorisation, which is managed across the matrix, and…
Katrijn BOB. DID YOU OR DIDN’T YOU FILE THE PARAGRAPH 501(c)(4) REQUEST IN TRIPLICATE BY DEADLINE TO THE SCRUTINY BOARD?
Bob I have no reason to believe…
Katrijn BOB, STOP PISSING ABOUT.
DID YOU OR DID YOU NOT FILE THE PARAGRAPH 501(c)(4) REQUEST IN TRIPLICATE BY DEADLINE TO THE SCRUTINY BOARD?
Katrijn SPEAK UP, I CAN’T HEAR YOU
Bob I dunno.
Bob [voice wavering] Katrijn?
Katrijn YOU ARE FIRED.
Poor Katrijn…how’s the majestic mane, miss?
The mane suffered terribly at Bob’s incompetence… Had to get an emergency appointment with my mane technician, frightfully expensive during a Bank Holiday!
