I told him…I told him that he should call it a day, you know? Go home early…I was…I was just worried about him. I didn’t want to get hurt, and then…And then he got angry with me. I don’t know what I did wrong! I know he cares about me.

You know, I have a lot of friends that would kill for a man like this, you know? I mean sure, he doesn’t always pay attention and he comes into camp late, but he’s so wonderful. He’s the man that we always dream about, you know? I was stuck with this black guy last year, and he just…we just couldn’t make it work.

He said that if I didn’t let him have his way…that I would get fired…

Things were so great in the beginning, but now…

Oh, I don’t know what to do…

I don’t know what to do…

I need you to testify.

Oh, God, no. You know I can’t do that! Please say that I don’t have to do that!

Mrs. Childress, it’s the only way. If you don’t speak up now, you could lose that first-round bye in the NFC playoffs. And you could alienate the rest of the people you work with for years, and then you would lose your job. Mrs. Childress, you can stop this. We can stop this. But we need your help.

My friends…one of them said to me the other day, “Well at least you’re not stuck with Vomit Boy and the Dog Killer,” but they don’t understand. They don’t understand that sometimes he just does whatever he wants. Oh sure, he was better in the beginning…when everyone was paying attention.

We had a big fight at work a couple days ago. In front of everyone! I was so embarrassed. Now I feel like the rest of the people in the office don’t respect me…

He said that he could change…but I don’t think he’s changed at all!

Well, look who it is. Maybe if you hadn’t been enabling this guy from the get-go, this wouldn’t have happened! What about what YOU did! If you hadn’t been making excuses from day one, we wouldn’t be standing here!

mrs_childress_thumb

That’s not true!

YOU WANTED HIM AROUND AND YOU DIDN’T CARE HOW BAD IT LOOKED TO ANYONE! YOU WERE JUST OUT THERE TRYING TO SAVE YOUR OWN ASS! AND NOW YOUR PRECIOUS LITTLE KINGDOM HAS JUST BLOWN UP IN YOUR FACE!

No!

Elliot!

Whatever. I’m gonna squeeze in a set on the bench press.

This was a mistake! I knew this was a mistake! [Runs off]

That poor, poor girl. [Head sinks in disappointment.] I wish people recycled more.
