Her Complaint Is Nothing To Be Sneezed At

| Working | August 28, 2016

(I work in a call center and have a very loud sneeze. Sometimes they come out of nowhere so the entire office will hear it. This particular coworker is on the other side of the room.)

Me: *sneezes super loud*

Coworker: *by email* “Can you please try to cover your mouth? I’m trying to get pregnant and I’m having trouble with it. I’m trying my hardest not to get sick in case that’s the problem.”

(I send her a pleasant email back explaining I will try harder to catch my sneezes before they come out. A few days later, at the end of the day, I leave through the back door.)

Me: “Hi, [Coworker]!”

Coworker: *turns around with a cigarette in her hand* “Hi, [My Name], have a good night!”

Me: *thinking to myself* “Well, there’s your problem!”
