Fine, but You’re Get­ting a Mus­tache and a Pe­nis Com­ing Out Of Your Mouth.

Scene: Cowork­ers are dis­cussing what to do with the bare space on the lob­by walls af­ter the two por­traits of the for­mer own­ers have been re­moved. Sev­er­al em­ploy­ees have worked for the com­pa­ny more than 20 years.
Cowork­er #1: We could hang por­traits of ri­ta* and bet­ty* since they’ve worked here the longest (40 years and 30 years, re­spec­tive­ly).
Cowork­er #2: What about [my su­per­vi­sor] and me? He’s been here 13 years and I’ve been here 12.

<b>cs:</b> yeah, on a dai­ly ba­sis.
<b>sm:</b> I think my fa­vorite was when you messed up your toe and blamed jane* for leav­ing the fil­ing draw­er open.

<b>sm:</b> I for­got, you did­n’t grow up in brook­lyn. We did­n’t have trees, but we were very con­cerned about open man­holes.
