Playing Games With Work

, | Working | March 5, 2014

(Early on a Saturday morning, one of my coworkers calls in sick, citing symptoms that are almost flu-like. Our manager calls me in to take his place during one of our busiest lunches of the week. Early in the afternoon, our manager calls the coworker to check on him. The coworker’s dad answers.)

Manager: “Hey, how’s [Coworker] doing?”

Coworker’s Dad: “Oh, he’s fine. He just left for the big college ball game with some friends, actually.”

Manager: “Oh, really? Have him call me when he gets back in.”

(That coworker didn’t keep his job past that afternoon!)
