An anonymous bookseller spins a tale about the employee he inherited and later fired. Much funnier if you know the Lower Mainland; the links below should fill in the neccessary geographical context for outsiders.

BOOKSELLER: Please take the van to Victoria on the ferry and pick up a load of books.


[Tempus fugit]

PHONE: Ring!


FIRED GUY: I'm gonna be awhile.

BOOKSELLER: Where are you? On the island?

FIRED GUY: I haven't left the mainland yet.

BOOKSELLER: What? You left at 6 for the 9 o'clock ferry. Where are you? What's going on?

FIRED GUY: The Victoria ferry hasn't come in yet.


The same boat keeps arriving.

BOOKSELLER [slowly]: Where is that ferry going?

FIRED GUY: To Fort Langley. Why?
