Carly came through the door.
“What’s up kiddo?” Spencer asked.
“I need $250 to get Sam out of jail,” Carly answered.
“If money is what you need you can work for Socko’s uncle’s son’s brother.”
“Why did you say that?”
“You said ‘Socko’s uncle’s sons’s brother’.”
“Well, Socko’s uncle’s son would be Socko’s cousin, and his uncle’s son’s brother, would just be his uncle’s son.”
“Do you want the job or not?”
“Sure, what do I have to do?”
“Well, he designs mats, so what you have to do is gather the materials needs for him to design them.”
“Okay, is his name Matt by any chance?”
“How did you know?”
Carly woke up and checked her clock.
“10:30! I’m late!” Carly screamed. She jumped out of bed and quickly put her clothes on and ran out to ‘Matt’s Mats’.
“You’re late,” Matt said to Carly.
“I’m sorry, I-“ Carly began, but got interrupted.
“You missed 2 and a half hours, so you lose 2 and a half hours’ worth of pay. If you’re late again, you’re fired. Got it?”
Matt handed Carly a list, “Go to these stores and bring back the material by 12:45.”
“Okay,” Carly said running off.
“Wait, where are your shoes?” Matt asked.
Carly looked at her feet and realized she didn’t put on any socks or shoes.
“Okay, it’s 12:26 and I got everything on the list. That gives me 19 minutes to get back to work,” Carly said to herself.
Carly rode her scooter down the hill quickest to ‘Matt’s Mats” but what she did not know that the end of
the hill was under construction. When she saw the cement she tried stopping her scooter, but it fell into
the cement, and Carly flew out her scooter and on to the ground. Carly checked her watch, she had 12
minutes to get back, but it was a 29 minute walk. Carly couldn’t get there in time and she would lose her
job and won’t be able to get Sam out of jail.
A ‘Matt’s Mats’ truck came over the corner heading to ‘Matt’s Mats’. Carly walked in front of the truck.
“Hey lady,” said the truck driver, “move it, I need to get these mats to work.”
“Hi,” Carly said nicely, “my scooter fell into the cement pit over there, and I was wondering if you could drive me over there.”
“No,” The truck driver started driving. Carly saw a ladder on the back on the truck. She jumped on it and
hung there until she reached her destination.
“…with 9 seconds to spare,” Matt said, “Good work.”
