Charlie couldn’t help but smile. “So the company’s saved?”

Tim chuckled and put his hands in his pockets. “We’ll see, but things certainly look better. Thing is, they went ahead without us. They screwed us, Charlie. No raises, no bonus, no company car. Hell, not even a god damn glass of champagne and a steak dinner.”

“I don’t understand,” Charlie said, his voice flat and shaking a bit, “what do you mean they went ahead?”

“I mean they fucked us, Charlie.” Tim whispered, glancing in both directions to make sure nobody was around like a kid crossing the street. “My prick of a boss Tony made up some B.S. about how coming up with new products or services don’t fall into either one of our job descriptions and so for insurance and employment law purposes, they just took our names off the plan. So now he’s off in Puerto Vallarta probably getting jerked off by the CFO while we’re stuck here for another Friday night in St. Louis.” The volume of Tim’s voice had been rising steadily, and Charlie had to shush him before people started to actively eavesdrop their private conversation.
