N. 8 - Mister Vacca - obsessions


Vacca



Translated by Emilia Maiella


- Canapone? Come here a second, please…

- But I have to do something…

- Just a sec…

- But, if the manager sees us, then…

- Oh, right… because he doesn’t want you to talk to me, does he?

- He doesn’t want us to waste our time at all.

- Uh, because for you talking to me is a waste of time?

- What do you want from me, what's up?

- In your opinion, am I jerk?

- Ow, no.

- No, tell me, do you think are they mad at me here?

- What are you talking about, Ciccio…

- How did you just call me?

- Sorry, I meant Vacca!

- Eh, you even pick the wrong name, but we've known for a long time…

- I got confused, I’m sorry…

- Yes, but you called me with De Straccio's name…

- Forgive me…

- Alright, but how could you get confused? Do I look like Dello Straccio? 

- No, you’re right…

- Whatever, let’s pick this up later…

- Eh…

- To get back to what I was saying, I mean, today the manager barely spoke one or two words to me…

- Well, meybe it was a coincidence…

- Ah no, I saw you two talking confidentially, about half an hour ago; to me, instead, he’s distant…

- It’s just an impression…

- How many words did he say to you?

- I don't know, it's not like I count them…

- Next time, count them: you’ll see I’m right…

- Fine…

- No it's not, because I need to speak, to communicate, to express myself… here, instead, it’s like you’re avoiding me…

- Absolutely no!

- So why are you sighing and looking up: I'm boring you, maybe?

- What are you talking about, are you crazy?

- Oh, I see. So you think I’m crazy?

- It was in a caring tone, Vacca.

- No tell me: am I obnoxious to you, Canapone?

- Vacca, you’re the perfect colleguee!

- Really?

- I’m saying that!

- But, earlier you called me with Dello Straccio’s name…

- I got confused, Vacca…

- Mah, I don’t know…

- Oh God, bollocks, Vacca…

- Ah, you’re being rude to me… see?

- … oh, fuck you, come on!

- Ah, no, what should I think? Canapone, tell me it's not true, here you have all the sympthoms of a mobbing!

- What mobbing, Vacca: it's just that you are a jerk, obsessed pain in the ass: nodoby can stand you, even the customers!

- Uh, well… see I was right? Now you admit it. Oh, you are stubborn and false, I always thought it and now I have evidences… ah, now I feel better!
