OFFICE CORRIDOR

GLOBAL IT SOLUTIONS

 

(SIPPING COFFEE) I just don’t see what your problem is, Adam…  I think it’s great working here…  OK, it’s my first job out of Uni…  And I’m still the new recruit…  But the work’s interesting…  And I certainly seem to be doing a lot better than some of my mates.

 

(SIPPING COFFEE) Well whoopee for you…  (BEAT) Oh don’t get me wrong…  If I were in your shoes no doubt I’d be chomping at the bit...  But I’m all of 17 years older than you are...  I’ve been there, done that…

 

Read the book?

 

(LAUGHS) I wrote the bloody thing...  I’ve been in this game too long...  It’s not the same anymore...  Sure it was fun in the good old days…  Oh my God, I’m beginning to sound like my father.

 

I bet you’ve always sounded like him.

 

(IGNORING DYLAN) I’ve worked all over Europe, you know…  (REFLECTS) Pioneering days they were…  I was part of the software development team that gave mankind the world’s first talking photocopier…  We were even on Tomorrow’s World.

 

(BOWS MOCKINGLY) Oh mighty one, I am not worthy.

 

Bloody thing got hiccups on live television…  Paper flying everywhere…  Judith Hann went into panic mode…  Tried to cure it by scaring it…  (BEAT) All to no avail…  Didn’t look good…  Kiss of death it was.

 

I must admit, you don’t see many about these days.

 

It’s just not the same for me anymore…  The industry’s moving too fast…  It’s not that I can’t keep up.

 

What then?

 

I don’t WANT to keep up...  I’m an old dog...  Fed up with new tricks...  Certainly not in this game at least.

 

Oh I see...  Stop the world I want to get off and all that.

 

Indeed...  But once off, what then?  For all my forty years this is all I know...  I don’t rate my chances of survival.

 

I suppose…  (LAUGHS) If you were an alien… (LAUGHS) And you’d travelled 200 billion light years to Earth…  (LAUGHS) You’d be saying “Stop the world I want to get ON”…

 

Nice one Dylan…  The highlight of my day so far…  (SIGHS) Bring on the Web Enabled Vending Machine.
