Defining Moments

| Coworkers, Language & Words

(I have just started a new job, and my coworkers and I have been tasked with signing up as many people as possible for our company’s loyalty card. I’m discussing my success, or lack thereof, with the coworker nearest me.)

Me: “Look! I got five people to sign up!”

Coworker: “Look how many I got!”

(She fans out all her slips; there’s at least a dozen.)

Me: “You got so many! You’re just very charismatic.”

Coworker: “…Does that mean like a b****?”

(She’s a wonderful person… she just could really use a dictionary!)
