Another Way To Lie
January 7, 1953
It was a snowy siku in Cheyenne. Everypony was working their hardest. Except Gordon. He was being very lazy, and refused to get a train out of the station.
Pete: Why won't wewe work this time?
Gordon: Because, I need help to repair this locomotive.
Pete: What's wrong with it?
Gordon: Everything. It's a steam engine. I want a diesel engine!
Pete: Gordon, I'm working on that, but unless wewe want Hawkeye to bother you, I suggest wewe be patient.
Gordon: Fuck patience. I want to drive a diesel!
Pete: *Sighs* wewe never listen. *walks away*
Gordon: *Climbs in locomotive*
Pete: *About to enter station*
Gordon: *Blows whistle twice*
Pete: *Turns around* Oh, now wewe decide to do your work!
Gordon: *drives out of station* Hahahaha! I upendo pissing off my boss. *Notices the cab* Aw, I left the fireman behind. Whatever, this engine burns oil anyway, so whatever. *drives faster*
Meanwhile in the station
Pete: *On telephone*
Operator: Operator, how may I help you?
Pete: Yes, this is Pete Reimer, controller of the Union Pacific. May I please speak to somepony in the Southern Pacific?
Operator: One moment sir. *Connecting call* wewe are connected to Michael Wolf, controller of the Southern Pacific.
Pete: Michael, this is Pete Reimer.
Michael: Oh, hujambo Peter. What's up?
Pete: I need your help.
Michael: What's up?
Pete: Do wewe remember Gordon Wilson?
Michael: Is he that machungwa, chungwa unicorn that keeps giving wewe problems?
Pete: Yes. Today, he just lied to me about not wanting to do his work.
Michael: I'm sorry to hear that. What would wewe like me to do?
Pete: I was wondering if we could swap workers for a day.
Michael: Hmmm. Let me check my list. *Checking orodha of workers*
Pete: *Checking clock*
Michael: I've only got one gppony, pony that wants to change jobs for an entire day.
Pete: Oh yeah? What's his name?
Pete: Alright. Get Stylo here to Cheyenne quickly. I'll send Gordon to one of your train stations in Los Pegasus.
Michael: Sounds good Peter. *Hangs up*
Pete: *Hangs up* I didn't think this would get so easy.
At the station in Los Pegasus, Michael got ready to take Stylo to Cheyenne.
Stylo: Where are we going?
Michael: I am taking wewe to Cheyenne. Another worker wants to switch jobs with you, and see what it's like on our railroad. wewe must impress the Union Pacific's boss for me. onyesha them what a typical Southern Pacific worker is capable of.
Stylo: wewe got it. With all that training wewe gave me, I'll do my best.
Michael: That's just what I want to hear. Let's get going. *drives to Cheyenne*
It was a long way to go from Los Pegasus to Cheyenne, but kwa the time they got there, Gordon was ready.
Pete: Now, please don't try to cause any trouble during your visit.
Gordon: wewe got it.
Stylo: *Jumps onto platform from train*
Pete: Whoa. We got ourselves a little daredevil over here!
Stylo: *Laughes* I am a pegasus Mr. Reimer.
Pete: Please, just call me Pete. Everypony calls me that.
Stylo: Alrighty then Pete. What would wewe like me to do first?
Pete: I would like wewe to work with Metal Gloss, and get a freight train into St. Foalis.
Metal Gloss: *Arrives* Hi, I'm Metal Gloss.
Stylo: Nice to meet you.
Gordon: *Enters Michael's train*
Michael: Hello Gordon, I'm Michael.
Gordon: Yeah, great to meet you. Let's get out of this hell hole.
Michael: Hell hole? Are wewe kidding me? You're lucky to be working on the Union Pacific.
Gordon: Let's just get out of here.
Michael: Ok, if wewe say so. *Leaves station*
Metal Gloss: *Enters freight train*
Stylo: *Enters engine* Ok, so what am I doing?
Metal Gloss: You'll be my fireman.
Stylo: If wewe insist. *grabs shovel, and puts coal in firebox*
Metal Gloss: What's it like on the Southern Pacific?
Stylo: It's good. Work conditions are great, and my boss plans to have the entire line dieselized kwa 1958.
Metal Gloss: Oh. I'm sorry to hear that. Our railway will most likely be dieselized in 1959.
Stylo: Don't get me wrong, I like steam engines, it's just that operating a diesel is much better. wewe don't need to waste half a siku with a moto just to get the locomotive going.
Metal Gloss: It only takes half a siku if wewe work slow. I upendo steam engines, and I'm glad to be driving this one.
Stylo: Alright. The signal should turn green soon.
Stylo was right. The signal turned green, and they were off.
Gordon was taken to Los Pegasus.
Michael: So, what kind of locomotives can wewe drive?
Michael: Don't say that, there's gotta be something you're good at.
Gordon: Diesel. I'll only drive diesels, and that's that.
Michael: Then wewe can switch passenger cars in the station.
Gordon: Switching?! I wanted to take a train somewhere very far!
Michael: *Covering ears* First off, wewe talk too loud. Second, if wewe want to work on this railroad with a diesel, wewe need to switch cars in the station.
Gordon: Do wewe only have diesel switchers?
Gordon: Why did I come here? *Goes to work*
Michael: *A little worried*
Gordon: *Goes to switcher*
Colt: hujambo look. It's a fat pony.
Gordon: Shut up.
Colt: I don't have too! *Sticks out tongue*
Gordon: *Walks away* Kids these days. They don't know any better.
Michael was on the phone in his office talking to Pete
Pete: How is everything going?
Michael: Not too bad so far. We got in a little bit of an argument, but I straightened everything out.
Pete: Good. Now wewe can bring him to Cheyenne tomorrow, just like wewe did with Stylo.
Back in the yards, Gordon was driving his locomotive too fast.
Gordon: *Nearly derails passenger cars*
Passengers: Ah! Those cars nearly left the tracks.
Gordon: *Stops too quickly*
Everything in the passenger cars was airborne for a little while, and then they fell to the ground, and broke.
Passengers: *Entering train*
Gordon: *Uncouples locomotive from train*
Passengers: *sees debris* What is this?! Why are there broken plates in this car?
Gordon: Did I do that? *Gets back in locomotive, and drives away*
Michael: *Arrives at station* I think it's time to check on how Gordon's doing.
Passenger: Excuse me, there's broken plates all over the floor in every passenger car.
Michael: How is that possible?
Passenger: I think it had something to do with the switcher.
Michael: I'll speak to him right away.
Gordon: *Waiting in siding*
Michael: *Arrives* Were wewe switching a passenger train too fast?
Gordon: I wouldn't say too fast, but-
Michael: I don't like being lied to.
Gordon: I didn't know I was going too fast.
inayofuata day, it was time for Gordon to go back. When he returned to Cheyenne, Stylo was there waiting.
Pete: How was it?
Michael: Bad. Gordon kept lying to me. One time, he just beat up a gppony, pony for being Japanese.
Gordon: I thought he was a North Korean.
Pete: You're so pathetic.
Gordon: Hey, I'd like to see wewe do some work for a change. wewe never drive any trains at all.
Pete: I'm too busy with paperwork.
Michael: Anyway, how did things with Stylo go?
Pete: Great. Stylo really liked working here.
Stylo: Actually Pete, I could stay here if wewe want.
Michael & Pete: What?
Stylo: Michael, I would like to quit your railroad, and jiunge Pete's.
Michael: Ok. *Goes to train*
Gordon: Great. Yet another gppony, pony on the rails.
