This “time out” takes place at the end of the script.
<<Interrupts Daisey with a slow clap>>
Bravo. Great work. No, truly.
Never in my life, or afterward, has someone so eloquently summed up my work. The agony and ecstasy of…me? As you can see, I applaud your effort. Your idiotic effort. And what is the point of this?
<<Tinge of anger>>
To make me…feel bad? While you were off spewing a river of shit, I built a failing company into the most valuable business in the world. Do you really think what you say will make a difference? Even if half of what you said was true, do you really think that people would listen to you over me?
Consider for a second, if you have the ability, where the information on labor conditions in China, at Foxconn, came from in the first place. Apple. The reports we issue, checking to see if companies follow our code of conduct…that’s where people find out about working conditions. If we find labor violations, the supplier either fixes them or is terminated. Conditions at our factories are better than Samsung, Lenovo, any of our competitors.
These lies you’re telling…anyone who can use goddamn Google can tell you how wrong you are. You seem to want to live in your own world of shit… and slander.
<<Pause. Gain composure, spoken deliberately>>
Why do you think we’re in China? To get people angry at us? Sorry, but no. The supply chains in China are unrivaled. If we were anywhere else in the world, manufacturing would grind to a halt. We can’t come to America. In order to make enough of a product to appease people like you, we have to rely on China. Your kind demands that we have one, two, maybe three of the newest iPad or iPhone ready to be bought.
God forbid if we run out! All hell breaks loose. If Apple didn’t have China, your world would end. You would at least bitch and moan as if it was. Nobody else can make enough Apple products that quickly.
<<Menacingly, with a touch of indignation>>
Tonight isn’t a virus. Macs doesn’t get viruses. This is an annoying pop-up enticing the gullible to win a new iPad, but these people aren’t gullible. They see the lies. It’s only a matter of time before you’re the one in agony.
