Bruce Roberts’ First Day on the Job

     As luck would have it, just this past week, my mad scientist, grossly talented, computer guru buddy, NAME REDACTED,  , found a way to hack into the  “Super – Top Secret – Never Before Detected – City Hall Gretsas Cam!”    

                                                                       

       
Yep, it’s the dreaded and feared G.G.SPYCAM  that has been whispered about  City Hall for years; ….”Gretsas has us bugged”, …..”Watch what you say”, ….”Where are those friggin cameras?”  are the common refrains.

     And just in time for the new Commission, we hacked in successfully, and thought we’d listen in to the very start of new District I Commissioner Bruce Roberts’ term. 

     Here’s the audio account:


     Day 1 – Roberts walks in his Commission office for the first time. Secretary follows him in.
 
Secretary  –  ” hello Chief …   er, uh, …Commissioner…er, uh …Bruce , er uh

Roberts – ” Commissioner will do” , “just don’t slip and call me Teel, or your you-know-what will be you-know-what!  …. ha ha ha ha ah ha ha ah ha  !

                                                 (Roberts seems in high spirits)

Secretary – ” Yes sir, Commissioner, you can count on me sir “.

                             
 (
Interrupted by ringing phone ….. 

    Secretary  – “OMG, it’s the Gretsas HotLine!    

Roberts – “I’ll take it, and maybe you ought to give me some privacy
!”

                                             (
Secretary leaves quickly)

Roberts – “hello, brand new City Commissioner Bruce Roberts speaking”


 Gretsas – “well er uh, hello Chief, er uh, Commissioner, er uh, SIR”


Roberts –  …  click

Gretsas – “Commissioner, Sir, ….. *#!%, he hung up !”

                                          
(Gretsas hits redial)

Roberts – “you were my boss, now I’m your boss, Commissioner Bruce Roberts speaking!”

Gretsas – “yes sir, is everything to your liking? , SIR! – did you enjoy the little breakfast muffins made into the little Police Cars?” … “And I noticed your car was a bit dirty, and I have Hebert down there scrubbing away!”

Roberts –
” get that little peep squeak away from my wheels!…And NOW! …. and by the way, you have 24 hours to repaint this office. It’s Pink, for God Sakes !! And it smells like woman’s perfume!…… Are you trying to test me already Georgy?”

Gretsas – 
” uh, no sir, er, new paint – first thing – and the smell, I’ll take care of it personally!”

             
 
(Roberts hangs up and fall into his chair chuckling…. rings secretary)

Roberts  Secretary, get me Lt. Bellsy on the phone, and tell him to get over here tout suite with his bug detector equipment……   Somebody told me these offices are bugged!”
