My office just hired a new guy named Doug. We were each introduced to Doug last Friday and he officially started Monday. Until we get his office set up, he is working at a table in the break room. Yesterday I went to get either a snack, a cup of water, or a glance out the window and Doug was talking with Ray. Ray broke from their conversation and asked Doug, “Have you had a chance to talk with Charlotte much?” Doug answered, “Yes. She is pretty sharp…and real funny.” Ray responded, “Yeah, she’s funny!”
I nodded and said, “Thanks boys, I’ll be here all week.”
Ironically, I couldn't have been more serious when I said that.
