I’m not one to gossip, but I just heard my coworker, Montez, have a real animated discussion with his wife. Seemed to focus on money problems (and don’t all domestic disputes start there, when you think about it?), and it was that kind of quiet-shouting that you can’t help but drop everything and listen to.
Well, it helped that Waymond stormed out of their shared cubicle, muttering about something that tipped me off.
I write this, not to shine a light on Montez (who thank god, doesn’t read this, or he’d be sending me joke e-mails and writing posts to use like I’m some god-damn Perry White), but to shed a light on his actions.
It’s just my philosophy, when you’re at work? You do work. When you’re at home? You do home… related activities. Bill paying, is one thing. Maintenance. It all has a place.
I would say, “Yes, I should just ignore it,” but Jet Set started hootin’ and hollerin’ at the call after about ten minutes, well, I think it was too his call he might have just been choking on some trail mix, but still, WORK AT WORK, people!
(Update: While I was drafting a rough draft of this post, Jet Set was actually choking, and Montez got off the phone to help him out. When it mattered, Montez’s head was in the game. I respect that.)
