The J.O.B. abbreviation is true, unless you are lucky enough to have a high paying job. Plan for book how you intend to launch that and change everything, inspired by voogd simple phrase too much information, lack of implementation.

Karen opens the door and CARLIN (tall, strong) walks into the doorway. David emphasizes his calls for help, but remains ignored.
CARLIN: What’s that?
KAREN: [awkward] Nothing, uh, come in.
Carlin enters the apartment.
CARLIN: So, how’re things?
KAREN: Um, you should talk to J.R. about that…
CARLIN: Yeah… Alright then?
J.R. stops Carlin before he gets too far into the place and spots Elmar.
J.R.: Hey buddy, how’s it going?
CARLIN: I’m fine, everything okay?
J.R.: Well yes, why wouldn’t it be?
CARLIN: You requested I bring my van out of the blue and wouldn’t tell me why over the phone. You said you wanted it for two days which means I had to get someone to cover for me tomorrow and… Now Karen’s all weird and shit. That’s why.
J.R.: Yeah, well..
Carlin walks past J.R. into the living room and sees Elmar slumped and bound to chair. David’s muffled cries continue from the closet.
CARLIN: [disturbingly calm but curious] So. What’s this?
J.R.: That’s for the van.
CARLIN: THAT’s for the van?
CARLIN: And the explanation?
J.R.: For the van too.
CARLIN: Is it bad for me to be here right now?
J.R.: Definitely not.
CARLIN: It seems like it is.
J.R.: No, I need your help. I really need you here helping right now.
CARLIN: So what do I do?
J.R.: Right, where’s the van?
CARLIN: It’s parked in your parking spot.
J.R.: I need you to move it beside the garbage dumpsters and recycling. There’s no camera there.
CARLIN: You realize this is fucking me up right now, right? What’s going on?
J.R. tenses up and deeply exhales a sigh.
J.R.: All will be explained. Just listen for now. Firstly, have my number lined up on your phone and ready to be dialled instantly if you see anyone —
CARLIN: — okay, explain what this is. Is this a joke?
KAREN: Just listen.
CARLIN: Don’t tell me what to do! Tell me what’s going on. Now.
