Un-bully-ievable Behavior

| Working | July 1, 2013

(I’m a college student interning at a local company. Several coworkers and I are standing in line for a program-wide ice cream social.)

Coworker #1: “The line isn’t even moving.”

Me: “Ugh. This is why high schoolers invent finger games.”

Coworker #2: “Finger games?”

Me: “Yeah, like the one where you tap fingers and… here, I’ll show you.”

(I begin to explain the rules of a simple counting finger game. Several other coworkers get involved. Suddenly, I look up.)

Me: “Oh, the line is moving!”

Coworker #1: “Oh, it did make the time pass faster!”

Coworker #2: “Yeah, I guess it worked!”

Coworker #3: “When I was young we just found a scrawny kid and beat him up when we were bored.”
