What's the problem?

man screen

       -e xy
            specifies the command character to be x  and  the  character
            generating  a  literal  command  character  to y (when typed
            after the command character).  The default is "C-a" and `a',
            which  can  be specified as "-e^Aa".  When creating a screen
            session, this option sets the default command character.  In
            a multiuser session all users added will start off with this
            command character. But when attaching to an already  running
            session,  this  option changes only the command character of
            the attaching user.  This option is equivalent to either the
            commands "defescape" or "escape" respectively.

You never feed me.
Perhaps I'll sleep on your face.
That will sure show you.
