The Pragmatist and the Uzi

The pragmatist in Jeffery told him that there was no better option than to just open up with automatic fire. The uzi that was sitting in his briefcase would empty the restaurant in fifteen seconds. It would all be over, especially Jeffrey’s career as a bodyguard. The more he thought about it, the less it made sense to answer the awkward silence with gunfire. Maybe, just maybe, his employer could figure out an interesting conversation topic without mass slaughter.

Really, pragmatism is slightly overrated. Also, Jeffery’s pragmatist seemed to be broken. He removed the ear piece and put it in his pocket. These things were still way too damn buggy. His employer would have to deal with his life being entrusted to a humanist for at least two more generations of tech.
