(I work in the appliances department of a well-known home improvement store. The following conversation happens between my supervisor, my coworker, and me.)

Supervisor: “I’ve read a few of the books but there was just too much stabbing in the back for me.”

Me: “And I don’t think there was that much sex in the books. At least, that’s what I hear.”

Coworker #1: “Well, it’s an HBO show. And because they can, they’ll add all that unnecessary stuff in there.”

Me: “True. Still, the whole brother-sister thing?” *shivers* “I can’t stand it.” *notices [Coworker #2] walking by* “Hey, [Coworker #2].”

Coworker #2: “’Sup.”

Supervisor: *ignores the greetings* “Yeah… incest is a big no for me. That’s usually where I draw the line.”

Coworker #2: *stops and turns around with a look of horror on his face* “What… are you—”

Supervisor: “Oh, Game of Thrones, man! Game of Thrones!” *laughs awkwardly*

Coworker #2: “Oh.” *relaxes* “Okay.” *continues walking*

Me: “Isn’t it funny how people will just accept whatever weird topic you’re talking about once you say it’s related to Game of Thrones?”

Coworker #1: “Shows you how screwed up that show is.”
