Fe­male cowork­er: I went out with friends last night.
Male cowork­er #1: That lie again?
Male cowork­er #2 butting in: I thought I was the on­ly one who lied about hav­ing friends. We have so much in com­mon!
Male cowork­er #1: So, what about your hus­band? He did­n’t go out with you?
Fe­male cowork­er: That was­n’t my hus­band. That was a male es­cort I hired to pre­tend to be my hus­band.
Male cowork­er #2 butting in: See? I don’t have a hus­band ei­ther! That was just a male es­cort I hired! We have so much in com­mon.
