Script for Choose Your Own Adventure

Int day. Shot takes us through the front door of the panera and into the bathroom. Young man (isam) is standing in front of the mirror. He's looking at himself and adjusting his tie. He looks pround and nervous. His phone rings. The scrren shows a picture of his mom and dad on the caller id. They are really cute.
"Hi mom."
I have your dad here too.
We are so proud of you. Widget Dynamics is a great company! We know they will love you.
Good luck. Call us as soon as you'e done.
Will do.
Mom and dad together
Love you!
Love you too.
Hangs up. stephanie, middle aged professional woman looks at a paper in her hands. It's a resume with a picture of isam. she looks appovingly at the resume and then looks around for isam. She sees him coming out of the bathroom and moves forward warmly to greet him.
Isam (CONT'D)
Hi, I'm Isam. It's a pleasure to meet you.
I'm Stephanie. Nice to meet you, Isam. You have a great resume for our customer service rep. I'm excited to tell you more about Widget Dynamics.
Let's find a table and get some lunch.
They move toward a table and put their stuff down.
Please, let me get the lunch. Please just be comfortable. What would you like?
(Obviously pleased.) Sure. I'll tkae the Spinich Power Salad. But no fried onions, I can't stand onions. And please have them add chicken. And an iced green tea with lots of ice.
Perfect. I'll be right back.
Thank you so much.
My pleasure.
Stephanis is obviously pleased and looks over the resume. Isam gets into line and goes up to cashier. He is served.
Hilda (cashier)
Hi! Welcome to Panera! How can I help you?
Yes, I'd like a Bacon Turkey bravo. Full order, just the sandwich and a Spinish Power salad, no fried onions, with chicken and a iced green tea with lots of ice and a cup for water. And I'll have it for here.
Great. That will be $23.79.
Button comes up. What did Hilda do wrong?
Forgot to ask about my panera card.
Forgot to repeat and check order.
Forgot to suggest a cookie.
Choice (1)
Do you have a my panera card.
No, and I don't really want one. I'm in a bit of a hurry.
No problem, please take this pager and thank you.
Isam takes pager.
Choice (2)
Starts to repeat order and gets interrupted by co-worker.
Do you know if the wifi is working?
Yes, they fixed it.
Go to pager line.
Choice (3)
Would you like a to add a cookie or brownie for only $0.99?
No thank you.
Go to pager line.
Here's your green tea.
Isam looks at it. There's one ice cube. He goes up to the fountain sodas. He looks around sheeplishly. He takes the lid off of the tea and puts in more ice. Ice and drink spill on to his sleeve as the glass overflows. He grabs a napkin and wipes his sleeve and the glass. He looks flustered. The pager rings. He picks up his order. The salad has no chick and is covered with fried onions. He looks like he is going to die. He takes the salad to the garbage can and tries to pick off the fried onions and gets egg on his shirt. He tries to brush them off into the garbage can and ends up brushing part of ths salad in. It looks like crap. He brings the food to Stephanie. Her expression turns from delight to puzzlement to disapproval.
You didn't tell them no fried onions and there's no chicken.
She looks at the meal and sees the green tea, which has lots of ice but hardly any tea.
Hmm. Widget dynamics is a really demanding environment. We really look for attention to detail. You can't even get my order right at Panera.
Isam looks stunned and sick.
I don't think this is going to be a good fit.
I'm so sorry, it's just that...
I'm sorry I wasted your time. I don't think I can eat this. Thanks for coming, anyway. Enjoy your day.
She leaves. Isam's phone rings. Its mom and dad on the caller id. Fade to panera logo.
The end.
