English Story

"the interview" a one-act play

Applicant: "I'm looking for a job as a consultant."
Employer: "I'm sorry, we already have enough consultants."
Applicant: "That's okay, with my experience, I can be an adviser."
Employer: "More than we can use already."
Applicant (getting desperate): "I'm not proud. I can do paperwork, I'll be a clerk, If you have too many, I'll start as a janitor."
Employer: "It just doesn't seem that we have any openings for a person with your qualifications."
Applicant (stands, angrily yells): "To work for you I'd have to be a low life, belly crawling, double dealing jerk!"
Employer: "Well, you didn't say you were an attorney! Have a seat, we may have an opening."
