"What about the last candidate - Clarice? Very professional and extremely polished." "Indeed - and that's the very problem." "What troubles you exactly?" "Well, straight away, she arrived on time, neatly dressed, with a CV printed in color (sparing no expense)." "I don't quite follow." "She was polite but not familiar, answered our questions thoughtfully, and had read our website content thoroughly enough that her own questions were intelligent and direct." "This is unsettling in some way?" "Incredibly," Mr. Base murmured, taking a sip of his tea, "for where's the insult in it? There was nothing but hope and helpfulness about Clarice; where's the hard edge, the hatred?" Mr. Vile's eyes grew wide and he nodded. "I see your point and you're absolutely right, but there exists an opportunity to introduce an aspect of unbalance - even, perhaps, corruption." "Ah, now, there's a thought!" Mr. Base replied. "Let us discuss it further at greater depth." They waved the server over to order luncheon, content that their conversation might take the better part of the afternoon. At Base & Vile, LLC, finding the right people to do wrong was tantamount to success in every way.
