The Interview - The Finale
- “All right. I’ve come to a decision,” I blurted while taking the final drag from the can of Slice. “About whether of not I will take this admin job at Burning Bridges, ” I added.
Bobo leaned across the desk and raised his right eyebrow slightly. “I do hope you chose the right one,” Bobo said.
I reponded, “Oh, I have.” Then I leaned in moreso than he, touching the oak top.
“Have you?” Bobo rested his palms and speedily drummed his fingers while leaning towards me even more than before. He opened his yellowed eyes wide. Tap-ta-tap-tap-tap-rat-tat-tat--the drumming continued.
“Definitely.” I planted my elbows, bent my wrists parallel above the desk, created a resting spot with my fingertips, placed my chin on that spot, smiled brightly and exclaimed, “Indeed!”
Bobo pulled the meat of his palm to his mouth, crinkled his face, gnawed on the back of his thumb, and squealed, “Well?? What is your choice?!”
“I have decided to take the job.”
Just then, Bobo’s intercom buzzed.
“Oh good!! I knew you would make the best decision for me. Hold just a moment Nate.” He pushed the talk button on his com and addressed his secretary, “Yes Montana?”
“Your 2 o’clock is here to see you sir.”
“Is it Mr. Tolliver--the 1st Assistant to the VP of Consumer Affairs’ Assistant?”
“It sure is, Mr. Bridges,” the slutty voice added.
“Have him wait in one of the side rooms. I’m finishing up with Nate, our newest 2nd Assistant to the VP of Consumer Affairs’ Assistant right now. Give our new employee a big round of applause Montana!!”
There were three joyless claps from the other end of the intercom.
I glared at Mr. Bridges. “Let’s backdafuckup. Did I hear you just say ‘Mr. Tolliver?’ What’s his first name?”
“Haha, I forgot actually! It begins with either an S or a soft C, he’s a new hire too! Who cares?!” He stood up and moved towards the door, prodding me to follow.
“Well Nate, It’s a pleasure to have you on board. I have a business to go run now! You can start next week.”
“Um...I’ll see you then," I wearily concluded as I exited the CEO's office.
