When last we checked, our hero was about to enter the Banking Classes with a tie and a vengeance. Well, he got fired from the GBITU within two weeks of starting and hasn't had a real job since. There was an INCIDENT involving repeated TARDINESS. Please excuse my tardiness. It will happen again. It will always happen again.
There has been (since then) some cater-waitering. Cater-waitering is not real, particularly not temp-firm cater-waitering.
I don't know what stories are any more, let alone how to tell them. Screeds still exist. There are explanations. But stories?
