Mullet Boss is a terrible boss, and Angry Customer is a terrible customer, but in fairness, Comic Scott is a terrible employee. It’d be interesting to know who was awful first, but to show them all meeting I’d have to do a Basic Instructions prequel, or maybe Basic Instructions Babies, and that ain’t happening.
I never noticed it before, but in a way these three characters form a sort of rock-paper-scissors. When any two of them are together, there’s a clear winner, but between the three there’s a stalemate. Mullet Boss threatens to fire Comic Scott. Comic Scott refuses to do what Angry Client wants. Angry Client threatens to stop bringing Mullet Boss his business.
Sometimes, these things I think up are a little too close to the way real life works.
