Tell me now, what do I have to do?

I just got a call from within our company, asking me if I could call a customer and explain a part of our program to them, here in my 5th to last ever night shift. Here's how it went in my head*:

"Now, could you give him a call"

"I gotta tell you, that's just not going to happen."

"Why?"

"See, I was laid off yesterday, and even before I was laid off, I was extrememly against calling customers for any reason other than the fact that I had promised them that I would call them back, which is something that I rarely did. Promising, that is. Now that I know that I have a finite amount of time left at my now back to crummy desk, unless this client is going to pay me large amounts of money for a bare minimum of work, I have absolutely no interest in helping them whatsoever, unless they force me to do so by calling my desk. AUGH-AUUUUUUUUUGH!"

"Good point."

*please keep in mind that voice in my head, the voice of my inner self, is played by the late, great, Samuel Burl Kinison.

For you and I, I'd bring in my PS2 and NHL 2005.

Cheetos will still be involved.
