Co-work­er: Do you want to tell them the truth?
Boss: What’s the truth?
Co-work­er: The truth is that you can’t go and I don’t feel like it.
Boss: So you want to tell them that?
Co-work­er: Yeah.
Boss: Do you want to tell them the truth or the en­chanced ver­sion of the truth?

5PM That’s a Wrap

Cube #1: It’s so cloudy out to­day; is there an Ar­maged­don sched­uled that I did­n’t know about?
Cube #2: I think it’s sup­posed to rain.
Cube #1: Well, since you’re clos­est to the win­dow it’s your re­spon­si­bil­i­ty to in­form the rest of us if the rain con­tains a plague of lo­custs. Tough break, but that’s the re­spon­si­bil­i­ty that comes with good cu­bi­cle lo­ca­tion.

4PM Re­view Mock-up Day Plan­ners

Co-work­er #1: Oh my gosh! They did­n’t give us a Sep­tem­ber 31 this year!
Co-work­er #2: What?
Co-work­er #1: I’m se­ri­ous! Look! What is this? Some sort of re­verse leap year thing?
Co-work­er #2: Yes, that’s ex­act­ly what this is. A re­verse leap year.
Co-work­er #1: Oh that’s so sad, you know, for all the kids whose birth­days are on the 31st.
Co-work­er #2: You’re fuck­ing bril­liant.
