(Lights up on manager and Joe in office. The manager is looking over paper work.)

MANAGER

Well, Joe, we’ve processed all your information. We’re very excited that you applied to work for Blockbuster.

JOE

Just happy to have a job, Sir. When do I start?

MANAGER

Unfortunately, there’s a problem with your drug test.

JOE

I don’t do drugs.

MANAGER

That’s the problem. (Takes out a joint.) If you’re going to work crap hours at shit pay, we need people who are as stoned as possible. (Lights it and takes a toke.) Sorry. (Offers it to Joe. Joe shakes his head.)

(Blackout.)
