9AM Back at Work

Manager: Are you doing okay? I’ve noticed you’ve seemed overwhelmed lately.

Smacking noises and paper shuffling

Assistant: Hmm? Oh, I’m okay. I just can’t find my purple posties.
Manager: Well, i just don’t want you to get frustrated and quit. We value you.

More smacking and agitated paper shuffling.

Assisant: Well, if i wasn’t busy, you wouldn’t need me. Where are those purple posties?
Manager: Don’t worry about the purple post-its right now. I’m asking how you are doing.

Lots of shuffling noises and frantic paper shuffling.

Assistant: I’m fine!
Manager: Are you sure, you really seem stressed.

Still shuffling

Assistant: I’d be doing a lot better if i could find my damn purple posties!
Manager: I’ll come back

Minutes later after lots of loud thuds and much desk smacking and paper shuffling. . .

Assistant: Heey! Here they are! Okay, I’m good now!

9AM Back to Work

Boss: Where is [Blake] today?

Girl in cube: I don’t know. He didn’t text me. I think he’s too embarrassed.

Boss: Why? Did you guys end up making out in front of everyone again at happy hour?

Girl in cube: No! Give me a little credit.

[Long pause]

Girl in cube: It was in a cab.

Cubicle #2: Umm… Today is the 12th. Tomorrow is the 13th. And humpday!
Cubicle #1: Oh no! Wednesday the 13th! Does that mean anything?
Cubicle #2: Well, it’s the day before Valentine’s Day. You got your wife something already, right?
Cubicle #1: Dang! I better think of something quick, right?
Cubicle #2: You haven’t gotten a card or anything?
Cubicle #1: Well, I did actually get her a gift. But I opened up my trunk yesterday and it smelled funny so I took it back.
Cubicle #2: … It wasn’t a puppy, was it?
