Call her shortsighted, but Jennifer was only cogent of the string of digits being promised for just performing her job of hair stylist. The appointment was for one in the morning (ship‘s time), with Jen being the only one except the client there. Though the request was unusual, Jen was ready and waiting.
The client arrived for the private session dressed in a very nice pair of slacks and blouse. Jen complimented her outfit, determined the kind of styling she wanted, and started making her look even better.
As the client’s hair was drying she pulled a sack from her pocket. Once the contents were exposed to the atmosphere Jen immediately understood why none of her co-workers had stepped up.
The off-planet passenger was snacking on a malodorous pudding of very questionable origin, with a very unappetizing look to it.
Do not let a large amount of money influence your choice, especially when all your co-workers have turned down the opportunity.
