A short scene about Attitude and Culture
By Paul Levy
Joan: What do you think?
Frank: They have an attitude problem.
Joan: But it’s true isn’t it. You haven’t actually been on one of the trains for months, have you?
Frank: I know how a train operates. And besides, there isn’t the time. We’re overloaded with the software project.
Joan: They saw you eavesdropping. I feel embarrassed.
Frank: I wasn’t eavesdropping. I was managing by walking about!
Frank: Well, I am glad I did hear. They were slagging me off. And not just me!
Joan: It was their tea break! Tell me, how well do you know either of them. Truthfully.
Frank: Ok. I don’t. But you know what it is like. There’s only one of me. And the shift patterns don’t make it easy.
Joan: Well I make it a habit to be on a train at least once a week.
Frank: Cos you don’t trust them?
Joan: No, because I want to be in touch.
Frank. Tell you what I think.
Frank: They aren’t giving you enough to do.
