Episode 127 • Threats
Give someone an ultimatum
It's my way or the highway
I'll give you to the count of three
You're not the boss of me!
Roger: Oh my go- What- What happened to the floor?
Mary: What I- I don’t know!
Roger: Well, I don’t care. Clean this up!
Mary: No, that’s disgusting. I don’t want to clean it up. Have somebody else clean it up.
Roger: Mary, clean it up or else…
Mary: Or else what? You’re going to tell my parents. I don’t care. Go ahead.
Roger: Mary, I already gave you an ultimatum the other day, remember? You need to listen to me and do what I tell you. It’s my way or the highway, Mary, okay? I’m going to ask you one last time – Clean- this -up. I’ll give you to the count of three… One, two…
Mary: You can’t tell me what to do! You’re not the boss of me!
Roger: Actually, Mary, I am your boss, you’ve been working at this restaurant for two months and I am going to fire you if you keep refusing to clean the floor.
Mary: Ugh, fine. I’ll clean it!
