Dennis Uzar Sarah Hopfer W-131 11 October, 2011 Joe versus the Volcano The scene starts with Joe throwing his hat in the trash can in a fit of rage. His boss, Mr. Waturi mutters the same select few words in a monotone zombie-like voice in the background while Joe begins to mess with the rubber arm, pretending to wrestle with it. Mr. Waturi realizes the situation and Joe and his boss begin to argue. Joe points out the arsenic tasting coffee, the zombie lighting that sucks the life out of the room and turns the main drain on wanting to know what will happen. Whilst packing his belongings into a bag Joe picks up a few books and reads the titles to Mr. Waturi then refers to the workplace as a sink and used rubber. Joe leaves the office after telling his boss that leaving him there to work is worse than ripping his throat out.
