Yah, Sure, Bye – Jen Goldie

“Hey Mark! Old buddy! Are you coming to the reception?”
“What reception?”
“Didn’t you get the invitation?”
“No. What reception?”
“Only one of the biggest yet! A major splash!
We’ll have a blast! We always do.
They’ve booked a room for a least a thousand people!
A free gourmet meal, drinks on the house and Bonuses!”

“Oh, really? Bonuses?”
“Yes! For all of the employees!”
“I haven’t received any invitations.”
“Everyone’s going to be there! And, I mean everyone!”
“Who is it for?”
“Only the President! There’s going to be media there too!”
“Of the country?”
“No! no! Of the Company. Man, you’ve always been such a kidder!”

“Who did the invites?”
“You’re other buddy John, of course.”
“Oh, I see.”
“John probably just forgot. Easy to do.”
“I doubt it.”
“Why wouldn’t he invite you?”
“I told him our President wasn’t doing a good job and I wouldn’t
endorse him next year.”

“Oh.”
“It’s true. Didn’t you see my report?”
“Uh no. Hey listen I’m a little stressed for time. I really have to
run.”

“What about our game?”
“Maybe some other time. I’ll get my secretary to call you
when I’m available.”
“Ok. Take care my friend.”
“Yah, sure, bye.”
