"script" is most likely the name of a command installed on your system (on 
mine, it's /usr/bin/script). Try "man script" and see.
So if you really want to call your script "script", but you have to either 
call it using its path (./bin/script in your example), or make sure that the 
shell finds it before the system command for example by modifying PATH.
To be honest, I would just pick a different name for your script.
