Coworker #1 (talking about the newly designed official computer desktop wallpapers): I don’t like the word “zero” in the wallpaper. It’s like such a negative number!
Coworker #2: It’s not negative if it’s used in a positive way.

Employee #3/jenn: It dosen't really matter to me.

Employlee #4/jenn: Oh good heavens, no! What if we just go by tj for tiny jenn and bj for… Oh. Um… Maybe I'm okay with old jenn after all.
