9AM Back to Work

Co-worker: I mean, we don’t really work in an office. We don’t even have desks. Okay, I do have a desk but it’s not, like, mine. It’s just a desk I’m at every day that I keep all my shit at. But it doesn’t have my name on it. Or a chair.

4PM Caren Out

Clerk #1: Why is she leaving now?
Clerk #2: She had to leave early to go get her brakes fixed. She was going on and on how they weren’t working this morning.
Clerk #1: So they’re going to start suddenly working now or is she just going to pray for green lights the whole way?

3PM Coffee Break

Copywriter: Were you looking for me?
Designer: Sorry?
Copywriter: Before, when I was in that meeting…it looked like you were looking for me.
Designer: Ah…Where I walked over, sighed, and declared “Tragedy”; I was actually looking for the coffee. The window to your meeting room just happened to be behind the machine. You guys have better coffee than our side.
