February 24th, 2014

Episode 48 of 489 episodes

You better not cry, you better not pout, because if you do, you could find yourself out of work. Grow up and listen instead to this episode on immaturity. Slow dialog: 1:15 Explanations: 3:10 Fast dialog: 18:13 Romero: Are you going to tell Amber that she can’t have Saturday off of work or should I? Alice: You’d better tell her. I don’t think she’s going to take it well. Romero: I’ll do it, but I’m not looking forward to it. She can be really immature when she doesn’t get what she wants. Alice: Yeah, that’s why I don’t like working with her. If things don’t go her way, she pouts and whines. I don’t know why they don’t fire her. Romero: I think she’s just a little inexperienced. This is her first job, after all. Some of her behavior is pretty childish, but when she’s not kicking up a fuss or moaning about something, she does good work. Alice: That’s like saying somebody is a good worker when they’re not napping! Romero: She’s not that bad, but we do have to look past some juvenile antics when our employees are so young. Alice: Yeah, too bad we can’t have seniors selling to teenagers. Romero: I think that would open a whole different can of worms! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
