PRODUCER: Bro, haaaaa… Their is God ooo. But this project file shows that this project was last updated on 2nd February, 2019. Why lying?
EDITOR: Sir, I’m not lying.
PRODUCER: You did!
EDITOR: I didn’t
PRODUCER: You did
EDITOR: After all, you haven’t balance up
PRODUCER: But have paid 80% of your charges and you haven’t done my work.
EDITOR: Have been doing it
PRODUCER: You edited only 3 scenes for the past 2 months, and you claimed that the work is in progress?
EDITOR: Yes it is. Are you the one that editedd that 3 scenes?
PRODUCER: No, I’m not. This is unfair!
EDITOR: What is unfair?
PRODUCER: What you did as a Child of God
EDITOR: Then balance up, and come for your work next week.
PRODUCER: Hmmmm… Ok, I will transfer your balance to you tonight
EDITOR: Yes, you’re now talking
PRODUCER: But let my work be ready by next week
