DRIVER (cyn­i­cal)

Let’s just hope I get to work on time to­day.

ADS (Unim­pressed)

I wish you were a bit more far-sighted…

DRIVER

Re­ally?

ADS (Ex­cited)

Of course. There’s more to life than get­ting to work on time right now. For ex­am­ple, your toi­let is filthy; you bet­ter clean it when you get home – with this

#Just­say­ing.

DRIVER

Hey it’s not filthy. Well, OK why not, I’ll try your spank­ing new de­ter­gent, got it.

ADS

It lit­er­ally oblit­er­ates 100%* of nasty germs— *Check which germs on the back of the la­bel!

DRIVER (Frus­trated)

—OK! I said OK Per­fect. Oh, and you ac­tu­ally wear that suit to work? Please!

DRIVER

What’s wrong with my suit?

ADS

It’s too old-fash­ioned. A lit­tle cheap too. How about this one?

DRIVER

Man, I can’t af­ford that now, so—

ADS

Oh, by the way, I know you don’t drink and drive, but I’m just dou­ble-check­ing. Don’t drink and drive.

DRIVER

Um. OK.

ADS (Stoked)

Scratch that; let’s have a tall, cool drink tonight and pre­tend ev­ery­thing is fine and dandy! Yes/no?

DRIVER

Maybe, yeah, we could.

ADS (Thrilled)

Speak­ing of drinks and cars – with no down pay­ment what­so­ever* you can to­tally take home this 4X4! (It’s much bet­ter than that pile of junk you’re driv­ing) *terms and con­di­tions ap­ply.

DRIVER

No down pay­ment? Re­ally?

ADS (Ec­static)

Yes! And speak­ing of su­per-low down pay­ments, you also kinda need your own place, don’t you? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3**

**more terms and con­di­tions—talk about that later!

DRIVER (Con­fused)

I kind of need to get to work now

ADS

Bor­ing. And for­ever alone. You know why? Be­cause di­a­monds are your best friend. And you’re fly­ing solo

DRIVER

Come on, se­ri­ously?

ADS

Yes. But don’t worry. I have a deal for you. For a small price, you could, in fact win tons and tons of cash!

DRIVER (Blown away)

Yes! How do I sign up?

ADS

About that… Hey look, you just got to work! And on time. Good for you! TTYL!
