The smell of deliciously baked potatoes filled the air, followed by the scent of mouth watering burgers. Staff at “Bobby’s Burger” were under pressure to produce the maximum amount of burgers as fast and as soon as they could. Ignorant and boisterous customers would soon be arriving, rushing to be the first in the long everlasting queue.

“Come on people, I don’t pay you miserable lot good money for slouching, now get on with making those burgers. I want you working swiftly and eagerly so that I can see smoke coming out of your bony fingers,” the boss yelled at his employee’s; as he carefully inspected how well they were doing their job.

In no time at all, the tills were tapping, coins were clicking and the rustling of five pound notes could be heard. The customers were demanding their orders from the timid and defenceless employee’s, who tried their very best to hide their fears.

When they heard the boss say this, the doorman opened the door and out went the employee’s like a heard of elephants. The boss came out of his cosy office to find his Burger Bar deserted. It was silent, so silent that a pin drop could be heard. The door was half open and the sign read “strictly closed!” The boss muttered to himself “Well that’s their monthly wage gone! How dare they have the nerve to cheat on me!” With that the boss went back to his office
