Left in a constant state of peaceful euphoria and with a newfound apathy to almost everything around him, Peter manages to not only impress The Bobs, a duo of downsizing consultants sent in to evaluate every employee on staff but get himself promoted by doing absolutely nothing. When his two close friends and co-workers are getting fired, the trio devise a plan to skim fractions of a cent from each transaction their company makes.
