With the doors locked, the windows welded shut, and MetaNet.com's water cooler empty for days, poor Roger has done the unthinkable—he drank the tap water. Now the Department of New Media is short-handed and behind schedule, plus there’s a dead body cluttering the hallway. But Roger will be remembered fondly—especially by the lucky employee who manages to swipe his ergonomic keyboard.
The surviving employees plot for survival and escape, under the close inspection of Dirk, the new Vice President of IT, who is perfectly willing to assign discipline. In fact, he’s looking forward to it. Meanwhile, in the obfuscatory words of President and CEO, Chaz, “MetaNet.com’s complex financial climate is experiencing a front of not-uncataclysmically inclement weather.” MetaNet.com is dying. The only question is: how many of its employees will die with it?
