Strip 3 – That damned noise
The Transcript For This Page
Guy touches a button on the corner of his keyboard, and some musical notes flow out of a pair of what looks like playing cards adhered to the cub walls close to him. They are speakers.
Caption: Recently the UWRS workers’ union won the right of employees to have entertainment in the workplace. Guy enjoyed baroque music…
Looking at the cubes from above, we can see Fat Slob in the next cube. Fat Slob is sort of the opposite of Guy – personally a mess but keeps a neat cube, as he does as little as possible. He also has a large flat HDTV screen on his cube wall that is running a UWN newscast at high volume. We see some smarmy pol in a suit talking to microphones.
At the bottom of the screen is an ID line for the TV network and the subject as “Cal Sector Rep. Paul Norman” (it’s okay if the tag line is not entirely legible at size)
Caption: But his cube neighbor insisted on playing UWN at top volume.
Norman (on HDTV): Every day, home managers and hobbyists slip and fall in their kitchens, home workshops and garages. Without a helmet, they run the risk of serious head injuries and even death!
Medium close-up of Guy looking really, really annoyed.
Norman (continues from last panel): That’s why I am asking my colleagues to expand the helmet safety law beyond home showers and bath-tubs.
Guy (small letters, grumbling to himself): If I don’t get some peace and quiet, I’m going to go postal!
