Rube Golberg Theme/Story
Money it’s needed for everything, from gumball machines to expensive high tech robots. Sadly Jeff has none. He began as a new employee for the new car wash across the street, but was fired after sending a lambo through with the roof down. Soon after Jeff got a job splitting firewood. He wasn’t very good because he was fired on the first day after cutting 2 of his bosses fingers off. He was a ski instructor until the ski lift incident got him fired. He tried being a mechanic, but on the 1st day he was fired because as soon as the customer left the garage the right wheel fell off. He tried doing Uber driving but quit after almost being arrested for picking up a bank robber. He tried to drive an ambulance but a patent died because he forgot to turn on the siren and got stuck in traffic. He always wanted to play baseball, but after trying he soon learned that a fast ball is called that because when it hits you in the face will knock you out very fast. Now drowning in debt, his life begins to spiral out of control. He tried driving a forklift but after hoping on the forklift the tires all fell off. His last job was for a billionaire as a butler, but was fired after vacuuming up a 5 million dollar diamond. Now working odd jobs he is trying to pay his debts, penny by penny.
