Voice 1: Geez, Henry, I sure am sick of doing elbows. Sure wish I could get on the leg line and do ankles

Voice 2: I know what you mean, Frank. I did wrists for 6 months before moving up to forearms.

Voice 1: But no, since new management has taken over the place, the whole system's gone crazy. What, with that new factory wing which you can't even go near, and all those new employees from Switzerland..

Voice 2: Yea - they get all the preferential treatment, and they treat you like dirt. I remember the old managers - you remember Old Fatty? Sure he was rich and worked you hard, but he remembered all your names and greated you with a smile each day. This new chap looks at you as if he wants you dead.
