Career Tip: Be the Office Grownup, Dear Reader

Office worker to colleagues: Yesterday, *jack* ran the dishwasher at 4 pm because it was very nearly full. Maybe it was the wrong thing to do, maybe it was the right thing. What it was not I guarantee you was the end of the world. The next time you feel a hot rage build at the sight of an errant bowl or spoon, please, take a deep breath. Consider a stroll through madison square park. Or do something much more radical and put the bowl where it belongs, even if it’s not your problem according to the rules. It won’t hurt you I promise.

Female paralegal to older male clerk: You’re gonna have to show cleavage at the court!
Older male clerk: I tried that once; they took eight weeks!
Female legal assistant, muttering: There’s your mental image for the rest of the day!
