Episode 2:   Mr. Jones Gets Promoted

Linda (Mr. Evil's Secretary):   Mr. Evil will see you now Mr. Jones.

Jones:   Thank you Linda.

Evil:   Jones thank you for coming up here on your day off. I'll try to make this worth your while. I have been hearing good things about the work that you have been doing down in the production floor restroom. The men all seem to be rather taken with you. I believe that you have some real management potential. How would you like to assume some additional duties and gain some long overdue recognition?

Jones:   I would like that sir.

Evil:   Well, we have a real need for someone with your talents and abilities to step up and take over the supervision of the men's locker room.

Jones:   The men's locker room?

Evil:   Yes, Jones the men's locker room. It will mean some added responsibility and exposure for you. I want you to know that I'm really taking a chance on you here Jones. But between you and me, I think you're up to the challenge.

Jones:   How large of a crew will I oversee?

Evil:   Well, Jones at this point you will have no direct reports, but it is technically a supervisory position.

Jones:   Who will take over my current duties?

Evil:   Well, Jones, with the most recent round of budget cuts we've all been forced to shoulder a little heavier load around here. At this point I would ask that you continue to perform the restroom maintenance duties until we can find someone to relieve you.

Jones:   Will there be a raise involved?

Evil:   Jones I'm giving you far more than a raise here. I'm giving you an opportunity to really shine. Keep up this kind of work and you'll go far with this organization. There will be plenty of time for talk of pay increases once we see how you adjust to these new duties.

Linda (via intercom):   Mr. Evil, I have confirmed your tee time for this afternoon.

Evil:   Er, ah thank you Linda.

Evil:   Listen, Jones. I'd really like to stay and chat with you but I've got some rather important commitments this afternoon.

Jones:   But what about the shift change you promised me?

Evil:   Jones, we live in a dynamic environment here. We all made an implicit commitment to this organization to do what it takes to get the job done. Sometimes that means that we have to stay fluid.

Jones:   Fluid?

Evil:   Yes, Jones fluid, flexible, willing to roll with the punches... Now if you don't mind, I need to take care of a few things before my … ah… off-site engagement this afternoon. Besides, I can imagine you are anxious to get home and share the good news with your family.

Jones:   Yes, of course.

Evil:   Oh, and Jones, don't make me sorry I took this chance on you.

Jones:   No sir.

-- Jones Exits --  

Jones (via intercom):   Linda, cancel the ad for the extra part-time help - and get my caddy on the line.
