Time To Let That Joke Go

, , , | Working | January 3, 2018

(My dad is the manager of a group of people at an office. Normally, my dad keeps the door to his office open when talking to employees, but on occasion, he will close the door to have a conversation. Often, my dad’s coworker, [Coworker #1], will see someone leave his office after a closed-door meeting and jokingly say, “Well, it was nice working with you!” [Coworker #2] is unfortunately not working out at the office, so my dad has decided to let him go. [Coworker #1] has been away for the afternoon, but comes back just as [Coworker #2] steps out of my dad’s office after their fateful closed-door meeting.)

Coworker #1: “Well, it was nice working with you!”

Coworker #2: *gives him a ferocious glare*

Coworker #1: “What the h*** was that?!”

Dad: “I actually had to let him go.”

Coworker #2: *puts head in hands* “Oh, no!”
