This Story Got Dark Quickly

, , , , | Working | October 4, 2019

I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most observant person. The office manager asks me to bring the trash cans in, so I go up to the front. I walk past several men in work clothes fiddling with a ladder and bring the trash cans inside. 

I notice that it seems darker than usual in the lobby, so I ask my coworker if she sees it, too. She looks at me like I have two heads, and then I hear laughter behind me.

Turns out, those men with the ladder were changing out a bunch of the light bulbs. I had seen this with my own two eyes and didn’t make the connection. They got a good chuckle at my expense but I think I deserved it.
