*sigh*  David, please look up proper screenplay formatting. A lot of people will not even take your piece seriously otherwise.

or type in 'screenplay formatting' into google and pick from any of the hits you get.

You've done the hard work of writing a story, now take a few minutes to learn how to format it properly so that people will want to read it.

I got the 'radio script' formatting from finaldraft.com, if it's no good then i'll put it into the standard 'movie' format.

Crikey, John C! What a tone to take with someone.

Amusingly enough, it seems you were wrong.

Anyway, this was a good demo of your dialogue skills and it was a complete enough story that takes a dim view of human behaviour. This would actually probably work quite well as a radio skit.

Particularly liked this: Fuck E.T. What kind of man pokes you in the eye? Dirty
bastard.

What I liked in this case was actually something that dragged down the script - it's reliance on profanities. I think the script would benefit immensely if you chose more elegant ways of expressing the fucks, dickheads, etc. From what I can tell, you're certainly capable of being more creative, as your skills with dialogue seem sharp.

Not bad and I even took it "seriously".
