Buddy works the loading dock at Roupp Pharmaceuticals. A high school football star, Buddy’s glory days are long behind him. A loudmouth and a bully, Buddy spends his off-hours drinking heavily, harassing women, and picking fights. A while back, he had a one-night stand with Rhonda Weppler. (She was on her way up at Roupp; he had already peaked.) She soon moved on, but he continues to pester her whenever he sees her, hoping for a repeat performance.
