My office is a playground for situational comedy.
Chuck: You inspire me, Joe.
Alex: Chuck, what are you talking about?
Chuck: Come on, look at him!
We all look at Joe, sitting in the corner of the office eating lunch by the window.
Alex: It looks like he’s eating mustard off a paper plate with a plastic knife.
Joe: That’s exactly what I’m doing!
Chuck: And to top it off, he’s wearing black leather shoes with white socks on, not to mention that oversized dress shirt. Look at those sunglasses!
Black oakleys from the mid-to-late 90’s, gold reflective tint.
Joe: I’m reading “The Economist” too, learning how to start up an energy business.
Alex: Joe, you’re unreal. You’d need a billion dollars just to see that world move an inch.
Joe: Alright! Check this out…
Joe moves to his coat, and takes his wallet out.
Joe: You see this ten-dollar bill here? Multiply that by 100 million.
Joe neatly stuffs the bill back into his wallet.
Joe: What do you think about that?
Alex: I’m going to rob you after work today.
Back to work…
