Bill and Ted's First Week on the Job, Part 1
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Bill and Ted got together on Sunday evening. They were both starting a new job at the same company on Monday morning.
 
2     "I guess I'd better get going," Bill said. "I want to be at work early tomorrow. I'm kinda nervous about starting my new job."
 
3     "What's there to be nervous about?" Ted asked. "I think it's going to be easy. That guy that hired us is such a geek. I'm sure he won't give us any trouble."
 
4     "You shouldn't talk about our new boss that way," said Bill. "I'm going home now so I'll be ready on time in the morning."
 
5     The next day, Bill got up early. He showered and put on nice clothes. He ate breakfast. He took the bus to work. He arrived fifteen minutes early. He had time to find the meeting room where he had to report first thing. His new boss was going to go over some important information about his new job. Bill took a seat and tried to relax.
 
6     Soon, more people arrived. They were starting their new jobs that day, too. But Bill didn't see Ted. Everyone was seated. The boss came in and introduced himself. He said his name was Mr. Jones. Just then, Ted came running in and sat down next to Bill. Bill noticed that his hair was wild and his clothes were wrinkled.
 
7     "Wow, I overslept. I didn't even have time for a shower," Ted whispered. He unwrapped a breakfast sandwich and began to eat it.
 
8     "Excuse me, young man," Mr. Jones said to Ted. "There is no eating on the job."
 
9     Ted looked embarrassed. "Sorry," he said as he wrapped his sandwich up and stuck it in his pocket. Then he whispered to Bill, "No eating on the job? That's harsh."
 
10     Bill was busy paying attention to what Mr. Jones was saying. He didn't pay attention to Ted.
 
11     Mr. Jones handed everyone a large manual. It was the employee handbook. "Everything you need to know about working for this company is in this book. You should take it home and study it this week."
