3PM Cof­fee Break

EA: …she’s still learn­ing to change a di­a­per and all that.
Suit: Re­al­ly?
EA: Yeah, but it’s been ex­tra hard emo­tion­al­ly be­cause our fam­i­ly is re­al­ly strict and my dad still can’t ad­mit to him­self that this hap­pened. All he’s said is, “I sent you to pri­vate school! Don’t they have sex ed there?” and “How could this hap­pen?” Which does­n’t help her at all.
Suit: No, prob­a­bly not.
EA: It’s like, “Dad, the ba­by is al­ready here, get a grip.” But, well, she’s the ba­by of the fam­i­ly and I guess we all know how fa­thers are.
Suit: No, ac­tu­al­ly, I don’t. I nev­er met mine.

12PM Lunch

Ac­coun­tant: This chick­en [Sue] brought in is yum­my. I’m just go­ing to take a break to eat it here rather than take it back to my desk. I don’t trust my­self not to get my pa­per­work all greasy.
Su­per­vi­sor: That’s why I’m go­ing to make a sand­wich out of it.
Sec­re­tary: Oh, I don’t care about greasy fin­gers. All I do is han­dle in­com­ing checks all day.

Re­cep­tion­ist: Cor­rect.
Ac­count rep: But, but, is­n’t that, like, a fire haz­ard?
Re­cep­tion­ist: Um, see those signs that say ‘In case of fire, do not use el­e­va­tors’?
Ac­count rep: Oh. Right.

Re­cep­tion­ist #2: I know. At least he’s pre­served.
