MY 2 HOURS AS A REG.
(aka "How I spent my Summer Vacation crush regging for postulate checks on freaked-out public.")
I didn't do it! Please say I didn't do it!
Shit. I did it.
Got ripped out of the safety of the Tech Division for a few hours--on command from a Flag Mission who orderered all S.O. staff to man a mandatory event for all public.
The doors were guarded ("locked").
No one was to leave until the prospect wrote a check, even a postulate check which they were expected to cover.
I followed orders, the penalties being to grim too consider to not try to help Clearing the planet (and their bank accounts) for Ron.
I think I actually got some person to write a check.
I never heard anything about it again and never asked.
Postulate Checks. Made good by what--I guess--Postulate Deposits?
Then the bank sends Postulate Overdraft Notices in the theta universe?
Why do people want to go up the Bridge again? There was a reason, I just can't remember what in the world they had in mind....
