5PM That’s a Wrap

Employee #1: I don’t believe in God. I believe in ghosts, but not God.
Employee #2: What about aliens?
Employee #1: Oh, totally!
Boss: Don’t you guys have something more important to be doing?
Employee #2: I have about 1,000 other things to do. None of them is more important than this.

Underlings: Uh….
Supervisor: Oh, yeah, it’s on there. Never mind.

11AM Reception

Co-worker #1: Have you seen [Amy]?
Secretary: Not in the past several minutes.
Co-worker #1: I hope she hurries up. I have to study for a test and my boss is breathing down my neck.
Co-worker #2: Hey! How are you?
Co-worker #1: I’d be better if [Amy] would hurry up and get here. I have a boss waiting on me and stuff I have to do.

Elevator dings. All look expectantly toward elevator, hoping to see [Amy]. Someone else comes out.

All in unison, disappointedly: Awww.

Paranoid co-worker #3: What? What did I do?
