When he was hired, they told him his job was to watch the Big Red Button, and ensure nobody pressed it. That’s it. He took his job very seriously.
Later, his boss brought in someone new. “Her job is to press the Button if told to.”
So he killed her.
“Damn, Bill’s late for work.”
“John told me he was close to getting fired.”
“Isn’t it a bit of an overreaction?”
“Not for a job with these responsibilities!”
“But he just does nothing, all day.”
“He holds down the button that lets the Internet go.”
“I guess you’re right.”
