2PM Re­view Can­di­dates

Boss #1: We can use [Derek] as our field su­per­vi­sor; he knows how to do the work.
Boss #2: Is he still a drunk?
Boss #1: Yeah. His wife left him.
Boss #2: He has al­ways been a drinker.
Boss #1: So we’ll put him in charge of every­thing and he can run the crews. We’ll pay his ex­pens­es and give him the com­pa­ny truck.

Of­fice drone #2: Um, maybe you should… [looks point­ed­ly at re­turn­ing boss be­hind drone #1].
Of­fice drone #1: I know! I’ll glue her cof­fee mug to her desk. Bitch’ll be spew­ing!

I Know the Per­fect Po­si­tion For You!

Em­ploy­ee #1: I don’t know how you got a bet­ter re­view than you did last year.
Em­ploy­ee #2: Yeah, me ei­ther.
Em­ploy­ee #1: You know, I re­al­ly on­ly get about 50% out of you each day.
Em­ploy­ee #2: Yeah, that sounds about right. Some days more, some days less. Usu­al­ly less.
Em­ploy­ee #1: Would­n’t it be great if I got that 100% out of you, though?
Em­ploy­ee #2: Prob­a­bly, but I re­al­ly just don’t feel like it.
