Asking For Trouble


current time:

Tucker told his boss there were going to be problems on the construction site. Several young men were hanging around the gate of the site for several hours. He called his boss, but the boss didn’t believe him. A while later, he thought he had figured out the young men, and called his boss again to check up. Sure enough, his boss said the men were from a local mafia. Tucker wanted to battle it out right there and then but his boss said that would be asking for trouble. Tucker agreed and they decided to wait for the police to come and send the young men away.
