Tom tried to plug himself into the system like a normal Senior Manager Executive Personnel, but was horrified when he realized his plug didn’t fit the hole. Since no one could hear his cries, he had to research, & found that he had a rare V12 plug when almost everyone had a G7. Tom wasn’t so normal in the center anymo’.
Now Tom had no hope o’ trading MADSOQ pixels with Jones Jim pixels or to yell swear words & punch interns or jack off in front o’ the big screen when it gave the green or ran the red.
& there was no hope o’ crying to anyone else for help. They were already gone.
Tom was isolated & vulnerable in this empty, clean building full o’ snug pods, in a state o’ unnerving abnormality.
