Outspoken Speaker

| Working | February 25, 2014

(I work in the office of a very large supermarket. Across the room from me are two very chatty colleagues, whose job it is to page customers and employees and make store-wide announcements. They have just finished announcing a sale we are having to the whole store, and then start gossiping between themselves again.)

Coworker #1: “Did you hear what happened to [Name]?”

Coworker #2: “I did! His girlfriend caught him looking at p*rn!”

Coworker #1: “And he was naked and everything!”

(The conversation then descends into a very graphic description of what kind of p*rn this guy had been looking at. Suddenly, my phone rings. Before I can even speak the manager is screaming down the phone at me.)

Manager: “Can you please tell those yabbering potty-mouths to remember to turn OFF the f****** microphone! I’ve got parents screaming over it so their kids can’t hear any more!”

(I looked over at the two coworkers, who were still nattering away. I was tempted to wait a few seconds more before I calmly revealed to them that every single employee and customer in the store was now privy to their dirty conversation.)
