Day 9: A Christmas Tale: Part 1

Meet Joseph Edward Groude, CEO of FineThreads©

You might remember him from last year as "Homeless Joe". Well, a lot has changed since Minifig Max helped him out that Christmas season.

Joseph has gone a long way from being a hobo on the street. However, one thing hasn't seemed to change. People are still afraid to be anywhere near him!

It all started when Joseph decided to start his own business. Remembering his love for good clothes, he was inspired to create his own clothing factory, which he called FineThreads©.

Business was great, and FineThreads© was very successful. However, Joseph dealt poorly with his sudden success. He became greedy, and eventually was only concerned with making more and more money.

This is Tom Baggin. He is currently working at FineThreads© to earn a little extra cash for the holidays.

A few weeks before Black Friday, some of the machines in the factory broke down. While the company is ordering and installing replacements, several new people have been hired to do the machine's tasks manually. Tom and these other two people are assigned with the task of sewing the size tags on the back of each shirt.

Unfortunately, the mind-numbering task of sewing size tags in a dimly lit room isn't the worst part of this job...

Tom: "Hey Mr.Groude, could I please have Christmas off this year? My nephew is traveling all the way from Canada to come visit, and I want to spend some time with him."

Mr. Groude: "Christmas off!?! Do you have any idea how far behind schedule that will put us!? I'm trying to run a business, and you want to take vacations! Soon you'll be asking for New Years off!"

Joseph Edward Groude dosn't have many friends. As soon as he comes home from work, he goes and sits in his creepy mansion all night.

One night, while sitting in said mansion, he receives a phone call...

"Hello, who is this?"

"It's your old friend Minifig Max! Remember me? Listen, I'm kinda concerned about you. You don't seem as happy as you used to be. I'm going to Colorado for Christmas this year, so instead of coming over myself, I'm gonna send three friends of mine to check up on you! I just wanted to let you know you would have visitors soon. I gotta catch my flight now, bye!"

"O.k., bye..."
"Sheesh, now I have visitors comeing. Can't I just be left alone for a change?"

To be continued next week...

Hope you guys enjoyed the first part of our Christmas Tale. After all the corner-cutting I had to do last week it's nice to finally be able to make something I can be proud of. Anyway, I'll see you all tomorrow!
