Manager: “Everyone must wear masks at all times in the office. Here, have a spare.”

Coworker: “I have a medical exemption.”

Coworker: “Are you telling me that you want me to pass out and die?!”

Manager: “Survival of the majority trumps survival of the few. Put on your mask, and take solace in the knowledge that you’re doing what evolution wanted you to do.”

He put on his mask.
