“The job’s there, Al,” says Milton. “You’re the man for it.”
“What makes you think I am, Mister Milton?” asks Al.
“Well, your war experience would prove invaluable to us here,” says Milton. “See, we have many new problems. This GI Bill of Rights, for instance. It involves us in all kinds of loans to ex-servicemen. We need a man who understands a soldier’s problems – – and, at the same time, is well-grounded in the fundamental principles of sound banking. In other words: you. Well – – what do you say, Al?”
“Well,” says Al, “I’m overwhelmed.”
:Of course, of course,” says Milton. He presses a button on his intercom. “Will you bring them in now, please, Miss Garan?”
“Yes, sir,” says Miss Garan.
“I’d uh,” says Al, “I thought of taking it easy for a while,” says Al.
“Well, naturally, my boy, after what you’ve been through!” laughs Milton. “You need a vacation!” Milton’s secretary hands Milton a briefcase. “Thank you, thank you,” says Milton, taking the briefcase.
“You’re entitled to enjoy life for a change, before you go back to work,” says Milton, holding onto the briefcase.
“Very kind of you to say that, Mister Milton,” says Al.
“While you’re resting,” says Milton, “Just – just when you get a chance…” He hands the briefcase to Al.
