They Work All Night To Get Lucky

| Romantic | January 27, 2014

(I recently started a new job. I’m currently working evening shift, taking my lunch. The morning crew is starting to head home.)

Coworker: *walking into the break room to grab her things* “Oh, hey. Late lunch?”

Me: “Yep. Busy day.”

Coworker: “Ah, well. Have fun. See you later!”

(She starts to walk away.)

Me: “Yeah, if you’re lucky!”

(She stops in her tracks and turns to eye me suspiciously.)

Coworker: “You’ve got to be pretty confident to pull off a line like that.”

Me: *shrugs*

Coworker: *sighs* “I wish I was cool enough to say something like that!”

Me: “Well, maybe one day you can achieve my level of coolness.”

Coworker: “I can only hope!” *laughs* “All right. I’m really leaving this time!”

Me: “Okay. See ya!”

Coworker: *whips her head around* “IF YOU’RE LUCKY!”

(She storms off proudly, and I hear her say, ‘HAH!’ as the door shuts behind her. I am impressed for a moment before she scrambles back in, grabs her bag, then runs off again, this time tripping before slamming the door shut. That clever klutz is currently my girlfriend.)
