Just Watch And You May Learn Something

, , , , , | Working | June 8, 2021

I regularly wear a watch, but it’s been malfunctioning lately, so I had it shipped off to be fixed. I’m in my office working when my boss walks in.

Boss: “Hey, what happened with your watch?”

Me: “I had to send it off for repairs.”

Boss: “No, I mean what did it do to your wrist? Did you have an allergic reaction to it or something?”

Me: “Oh, that? That’s just a tan line.”

Boss: “Are you sure it’s just a tan line? It’s so much lighter than the rest of your skin.”

Me: “Yes, I’m sure. This happens to me every summer. I just need to do better about wearing sunscreen.”

Boss: “Um… okay, then.”

Still skeptical, he heads back over to his office.

Coworker: *Laughing* “He didn’t know that black people can tan!”
