(discussing another female coworker).
Female coworker: Have you noticed how she says “sup” when she comes in in the morning? She sounds all hard and stuff.

Male coworker #2: They have streets in kentucky?

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> where are there manholes?
<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.

And All My Sister Wives Agree

coworker — that’s really mean to say about my mom. Coworker #2 — no it’s not about her. I said you look like an inbred baby. I didn’t say you were inbred.
