Bumble Bee

It was just like any other morning, getting ready for work, my usual shower before breakfast. I climb out of my bed to make my way to the bathroom, to my surprise the bathroom was invaded by a gang of bumble bees, I was mystified by it, the window was shut, how they got in I have no clue. The only logical solution to my dilemma was to kill all the invading bumble bees, which I did with the help of my shaving foam, I shot down every single one of them, then I went about my business. What I had not expected to see was yet another bumble bee invasion the following morning, this continued for three mornings in a row. The fourth morning there were no more bumble bee, to my delight, so I pick up my small mirror in the bathroom to shave as I have always done, except this time I feel a small sting on my index finger where I held the mirror. There it was a bumble bee, it had waited for me and stung me, in revenge for the massacre. My name is Stanley Cooper, I am a sales executive and live in the city of New York, I’ve been unlucky in love, work and relationship, but my life changed beyond recognition since being stung by a bumble bee.

Stanley – Can you change your tune.

Busker – Yeah, what do you want me to sing.

Stanley – Actually can you stop singing, you’re giving me a headache.

Busker – Hey I’ve got to earn my bread,

Stanley – Well earn it somewhere else.

The tube arrives, Stanley gets on board. Stanley takes a seat; an elderly man is seen standing and struggling to keep balance.

Stanley reads through the letter, it’s a complaint letter from a client.

Stanley – Sh*t.

Mr Hopkins – That’s right, is it true.

Stanley – Well not exactly.

Mr HopkinsThere are cameras in the building, we can check them.

Stanley – Well he threw the first punch, and he started it.

Mr Hopkin – Look I don’t care if he slept with your wife, you can’t punch anyone while at work, I’m going to have to fire you.

Stanley – I have bills to pay.

Mr Hopkins – You just keep that in mind in your next job, don’t bother asking for reference, we’ll send you your check through the post.
