Abstract:

A satirical account of the office worker's mindset, a long-suffering employee in a big corporation has summoned up the courage to ask for a raise. But as he runs through the looming encounter in his mind, his neuroses come to the surface: What is the best day to see the boss? What if he doesn't offer you a seat when you go into his office? It explores how this employee losing his identity and possibly his sanity as he tries to put on the most acceptable face for the corporate world, with its rigid hierarchies and hostility to new ideas. If he follows a certain course of action, so this logic goes, he will succeed but, in accepting these conditions, are his attempts to challenge his world of work doomed from the outset?
