The Talk

The next day at work, Jack did as he promised…

Jack:
Good morning Carol,
can I talk to you
in private for a second?

Carol:
Oh sure, Jack.
Anything for you.

Jack:
About the note you put in my pocket…
I’m really sorry if I lead you on,
that was never my intention.
I’m just really playful
and I guess I took it too far.

I have a girlfriend.
Perhaps I should have been
more clear about that,
so I apologize if I wasn’t.
I’m really, really sorry.

Carol:
Oh Jack, you silly boy…
Of course I knew
you had a girlfriend!
I asked around
and found out all about you.

Jack:
Oh! Whoa! So what were you hoping
would happen here?

Carol:
Well Jack, it’s really
not that complicated!
You know you’re attracted to me,
I can tell.
And now you know
the attraction is mutual.
So…

Jack:
Well Carol, I’m sorry,
but nothing’s going to happen.
My girlfriend found that note,
and now she won’t even come home
until I fix this mess!

Carol:
Oh, you poor baby,
that’s too bad.
Is there trouble in paradise?

Jack:
This isn’t funny, Carol!
You? You and I? No!
I… I can never do that to my girlfriend.
I love her too much.

Carol:
Well, see, I don’t think
you really have a choice, Jack.
If you don’t want to see me
then life here at work can get really,
really complicated for you.

Jack:
What? Wait a minute!
What are you doing?
Are you…?
Are you black-mailing me?
