Ressources humaines



Hi, Felix, where is your mom?

They have grown.

It's heavy.

- You got any presents for us?

- Did you have a good trip?

- Hi, mom.

- Hi, son. Did you have a nice trip?

- The presents!

- Don't you say hi to your son?

- Hi, dad.

- Hi, son.

Cheer up, dad, your son's here.

He thought you had missed the train.

Times goes by, he remains the same.

He's been talking about your job

for a month...

and it's been a week

since he's saying you'll be late.

If he had missed the train,

you would go and talk to the boss?

I go to the plant every day,

it's quite an ordinary thing.

And I wouldn't hesitate

to talk to the boss.

All right, I'm home.


Felix, Marie, be careful.

- I'm hungry!

- The meal is almost ready, boys.

What are you doing?

Give it to me. It's heavy.

I feel guilty, but

since you don't come often.

And since I look after the children,

I had to buy a double bed.

- But this is your room.

- It used to be.

The green one goes in here.

- Have your husband try it.

- Thank you.

- So you also drink now?

- It's a family thing.

Don't play the wiseboy with the boss

tomorrow. Just see what he wants.

You could easily be the wiseboy there.

- There's nothing I can do, if people

don't understand what I say. -Please!

I do mean it.

He's no professor of yours.

Working and studying are not the same.

You have to be formal.

I know. I've done an internship already.

The interview at the headquarters

was alright. No problem.

He's been trained for interviews

that are harder than this.

The boss is just a small company,

he won't intimidate you.

He could be a boss, or whatever.

But we need him.

I'm just a temporary employee.

A good reason to be prepared.

I am prepared.

Good job! I was nervous.

Are you happy?

- Being a bit nervous is quite normal.

- I don't know- May be.

You look fine.

Let me see- This is really becoming.

Quality stuff. You look handsome.

- You look fine in a suit.

- You say so, mom.

Really, I swear it.

- Do I look adequate?

- You look just fine.

- Your a handsome boy.

- Thank you, mom.

So long, son. Good luck.

- Good morning, Alain.

- How are you?

- Ready?

- Yes.

Ready for a well-off job.


Patrick, this is my son.

- He'll work at the offices.

- Great.

- How much is your bike?

-3.000 francs.

That's not cheap.

- It's cheaper than a car.

- You're right.

We arrive 15 minutes earlier

every morning.

We take coffee,

we do some jokes.

A better way to start your day.

- It's quite pleasant.

- You say so.

Also, there's a bonus for punctuality.

And I wouldn't reject a rise.

- If we keep talking, we'll be late.

- Right. Let's go.

- Let's go to work!

- We got five minutes more.

If we listened to him, we'll be there

- Good morning. Who are you?

- It's my son.

The boss will see him at 9.

I'm showing him around.

This is no zoo.

I don't care if he's your son.

Stop playing the cop. You have no right

to forbid him coming in.

No one asked you. Shove off.

I just wanted him to see my machine.

When he gets a permit,

you'll show it to him.

This is no circus.

I'll see the machine later, dad.

Go and wait in the room.

Don't be sore, I meant no offence.

These are the rules.

We mean to protect the workers.

Machines are dangerous.

If they distracted, there could

be a serious accident.

I see, I just wanted

to be kind to my father.

If you feel so, go over,

under my responsibility.

- Careful, presses are dangerous.

- All right. I appreciate.

Did they let you in?

This is my machine.

You place the part in here.

The welder is over there.
