His Dedication

The bored cashier flipped the page of his Dance Monthly magazine while waiting for his shift to end. It was bad enough that he had to live next door to an idiot, so working with one made his life completely miserable. Glancing up from his magazine, he sneered at the customers that were enjoying the restaurant's burgers.

Out of the corner of his eye, the cashier noticed a small figure crawling on the ground toward the boss' office. It was none other than his boss' arch enemy, who had wasted his life on trying to steal the burger's secret recipe. The cashier, while finding the small guy annoying, praised him for being so dedicated toward the things that he wanted.

It was this reason why Squidward had fallen in love with Plankton.
