Simon and Pete start chuckling. Victoria seems more annoyed and gets redder in the face. The rest of the department bow their heads down because they know there will be a tirade of violent outbursts from Victoria next.
Victoria: [Red in the face] This sort of laziness and unprofessionalism won’t be tolerated. If I say there is a meeting I expect you here promptly. I don’t care if you get stabbed, shot, held up by a parent. You drag yourself to our meetings and you arrive here on time! Some of you don’t need to go out for fresh air anyway− I know some of you lean out of the classroom window for a cheeky fag now and again!
Get it! [Stares intently at Simon and Paul].
