A couple of notes,

First off, I really l like how you compose your action lines, they're quick, efficient, and very descriptive. It's tight, keep at it.

Also, Brandon is quite unlikable, if I saw him on screen, I definitely would not be rooting for him.

Dialogue is Ok, sometimes it feels a little exposition heavy, as in you are telling stuff to the readers through dialogue and it fractures the credibility in the conversation.  Maybe it's just me.

Ok, I continued reading and besides those exposition-heavy lines, the dialogue is very strong, i particularly love the exchange at the drive-thru.

The comedy itself works very well for this sort of short, it's very well realized and the whole poop fiasco was very enjoyable and it put a smile on my face.

Can I say that I was a little confused by the ending? Maybe I missed something.

Anyway, good job.

Hi Luis -

Thanks so much for the read. I believe you're right about the ending, I hadn't even realized it could be confusing until I read your comment.

To clarify....(Spoiler) The final news broadcast was meant to imply that the steroids were mistakenly delivered, and tracked by authorities, to Aaron's Templeton's home. Then they searched his home and found child pornography at his house validating Luke's earlier claim/suspicion that he was a child molester.  Luke gives Tim a "See, I told you so!" look upon hearing the news.

I'll see what I can do to clean up the dialogue (The USPS part was suppose to be removed but I uploaded the wrong version) and ending.

Again, I really appreciate the input and will keep an eye out for your future posts for return reads.
