N. 11 - Meditation


Lilli Capovolta


- Miss Capovolta?

- Tell me director...

- What happens to the cashier of Dello Straccio?

- Dello Straccio is doing meditation...

- What?

- Customers show they like it...

- Are you joking?

- Why?

- Tell him to resume work immediately!

- No, I don't go there...

- Are you afraid of Dello Straccio?

- I'm not afraid of anyone. But also we workers need our spaces!

- But are you all crazy here?

- Director… against the weariness of modern life, a little meditation works well!

- Now I'm going to Dello Straccio...

- No, director, you can't...

- What are you doing? Why don't you let pass?

- I meant… you don't have to do it, director...

- Don't I have to? What does it mean I don't do it?

- Those customers have paid...

- They paid for what?

- The cost of the course...

- Are you're telling me Dello Straccio holds paid meditation courses at work and during the service hours?

- That's right, director...

- A meditation course in the vortex of confusion? Here in the belly of consumerism? If it wasn't an idea of Dello Straccio, I'd say it's brilliant!

- Why don't you sign up too? You will do you good...

- Doesn't it look like a demonstration of weakness?

- No, indeed...

- What is the course?

- You just have to be silent.

- That's all?

- Yes.

- And how much does it cost?

- Fifty euros a month, once a week...

- Fifty euros just to stay silent?

- Sure. It's very therapeutic.

- Capovolta: How long has this story been going on?

- For a week. The minister has had a recent appointment...

- The minister?

- Yes, Dello Straccio is practically a kriya minister...

- Hmm… do you think I could get a discount?

- And why?

- Well, after all, I'll let you do it in the supermarket's spaces...

- I think so, Director. I think we can reach an agreement...

- Speaking of which, Miss Capovolta. What's your your role in this business?

- Yeah, I didn't think about it. I have no role. Now I'm going to talk to Dello Straccio...

 

Ciccio Dello Straccio


 

- Dello Straccio?

- Hi, Lola.

- I have to talk to you…

- I know…

- How do you know?

- Eh, I'm practically a kriya minister… I know what I must know.

- What role do I have in this business?

- A very important and fundamental role!

- Ah… By which you mean?

- You are my first assistant!

- Really?

- Sure!

- What have I to do?

- You must precede me, announce me, take notes...

- And what do I get out of it?

- Nothing.

- Nothing?

- You said cash disgust you and I chose you for this reason!

- Cash disgust me, not money in general.

- I know, but the matter is set up in this way...

- Well, but remember you can't practice at work and during the working timetable...

- Who says this?

- I say so!

- Ah, so you stab me in the back? I didn't expect a thing like this from you...

- So, can we end everything like this?

- A moment, why end...

- Do you think we can't find a solution?

- I can do a step back, you can do step back...

- Meaning what?

- We can agree on tips.

- I didn't know classmates left tips.

- They aren't really tips. Let's say we do them a subscription and a free but compulsory offer, and that's what you get.

- Really?

- Yeah. It's a bargain. Sometimes you will earn more than me.
