Conversation with Bill
Dead rising bill
Bill: Somebody there! Help! Help please!

Bill: Whoo! Whatta relief to finally get out! I owe you one! I was just trying to get the place arranged when the whole pile came down on me. I've been trapped for two whole days. The mall's open today right? It's not a holiday. I wonder why no one passed by until now...

Frank: You were stuck for two days? You haven't had contact with anyone?

Bill: Yeah, unbelievable isn't it. I've lost a lot of weight, but it was no picnic. Well, I guess I'll just head home then. I mean the company owes me one right? They won't care if I knock it off a bit early. Thanks a lot man!

See you around![2]
