The narrators do amazing job telling these stories that you as the “listener” feel just as compelling and engaging if you were reading it in print.

Management: “We’ll Reopen Sometime in the Summer”

A Week Later: “We’re Reopening in Two Weeks with Half of the Branches, but the restrooms won’t be open”

The next day: “Never Mind, we’ll open the bathrooms. But printing won’t be an option.”

The Next Day: “Scratch that…printing will be option but the amount of pages will be up to the branch.”
