The Wilds of the Workplace
Martie: Hey, Maudie, where did you go a minute ago?
Maudlynne: Martie, do you know what "schmutz" means?
Martie: No, why?
Maudlynne: Charlie said I had "schmutz," then took me into the kitchen and rubbed a wet paper towel on my face.
Martie: Oh, that just means you...
Maudelynne: AAAAIIIIIEEEEEE! What is that horrible noise?!?
Martie: Don't be scared, Maudie, it's just the phone.
Maudlynne: The what? AAAAAH, there it goes again!
Martie: Just answer it.
Maudlynne: Answer what? What does it want? I don't know what it wants me to do! It's getting angry!
Martie: Calm down, Maudie! Here, I'll show you.
Martie: Just say "Hello."
Maudlynne: I don't know about this, it looks hungry.....HELLO?!?
Martie: Don't scream, Maudie, just say "Hello."
Maudlynne: Oh. Okay. Hello? No, this isn't Charlie. It's Maudlynne. MAUDLYNNE! M-A-U-D....Well, I don't know who you are, either! Dean who? Dean Ofnursing. What kind of name is that?
Martie: Okay, let's just take a message before we get Charlie fired.
Maudlynne: I'm glad you knew what to do, Martie. This whole "office" place is really weird.
Martie: Weirder than home?
Maudlynne: Uhm. Well, no. Fewer cats, though.
