Florida accompanies James on his job interview at a department store, but the supervisor prefers to hire Florida and not James.

Plot summary Edit
James is sure that he is going to get a sales position at a department store but when he brings Florida along to the interview he is in for a big surprise – the supervisor would rather hire Florida than him. It seems the supervisor would "kill two birds with one stone" hiring an African American woman.
