Inane Conversations

“Simon, right?”

“Yeah, man.”

“How old are you?”

“Thirty-one.”

“How many jobs have you had?”

“Fifty-seven.”

“You’ve had fifty – wait, what?”

“Yeah, fifty-seven.”

“What the hell have you been doing with your life?”

“Nothing, really.”

“Nothing…?”

“Yeah, nothing. Do I get the job?”

“…”

“Is that a yes or a no?”

“That would be a no, Simon.”

“Oh.”

“Thanks for coming by, I’ll have Stephen show you to the door.”

“No need, man.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yeah. We only sat in a booth, after all.”

“Good point.”

“How hard can it be to walk across the room and out the only door here?”

“Goodbye, Simon. Don’t come back.”

“I suppose that makes this the one-hundred and eighty-ninth interview.”

“Just get out.”

“I’m going, I’m going.”
