"Jason, Mr. Foreman, Mr. Withers can see you now. Please go right in."

"Hello Jason. And you must be Mr. Foreman, Jason's father. I'm Zachary Withers, the Superintendent in charge of Home Delivery Services."

"Hello, Mr. Withers."

"Kindly take seats while I pull out Jason's dossier."

"What's a dossier, dad?"

"It's bureaucratic lingo, a formal term for your file."

"Sounds like a spy movie."

"Mr. Foreman, we'd be happy to have Jason work for us this summer."

"Thanks, Mr. Withers. Isn't that great, dad?"

"Yes, it is. Your first job. Congratulations."

"All we need to do to finalize the entry process is to complete the mandatory security background check on Jason and the rest of his family, which would be you and his mother."

"A security check? What exactly does that entail?"

"I don't do them myself so I can't be more specific. The completed questionnaires are sent to a contracted third party that specializes in that sort of thing. They have a reputation for being very thorough. You can't be too careful these days, you know."

"Careful, uh huh. Mr. Withers, perhaps you can explain to me why it's necessary to do a background check on all of us when only Jason will be working for you."

"I'm merely following regulations, Mr. Foreman. The position Jason is applying for requires a level one security clearance for his entire family."

"A level one security clearance."
