Marking Time Until You’re Called To HR

, , , , | Working | June 22, 2020

I work with three other coworkers. We do not like [Coworker #1]. She likes to track the times we are in and out, and no one is allowed to do that. [Coworker #2], [Coworker #3] and I are in [Coworker #3]’s cube near our signout board.

[Coworker #1] walks over to the board and writes down where she is going. She turns to walk away.

[Coworker #3] is in the middle of a sentence.

Coworker #3: “…and I just don’t understand — 12:49! — why they did that; it is so tacky.”

[Coworker #2] and I look at her in shock.

Us: “Did you just say that out loud?!”

Coworker #3: “What?”

Me: “You just said the time really loudly as [Coworker #1] walked away. “

Coworker #3: “Oh, I guess because I was looking at the clock when she signed out and it was stuck in my head and it just came out.”

Us: “You better tell our boss what you did before she complains that you are marking her time.”
