Actual Conversations From Work: Vol.02

Preface: Male Co-Worker #2 enters our place of employment, head down, dragging his feet along, his hood up over his head. He enters the backroom.

Me: “What the hell happened to you?”

Male Co-Worker #2: “I’m so hungover. I was at the bar last night drinking shots of abstinence.”

Me: “Of what?”

Male Co-Worker #2: “Abstinence.”

Me: “You were drinking abstinence?”

Male Co-Worker #2: “Yeah, man. It was seven bucks a shot. They just legalized it.”

Me: “They’ve only just legalized abstinence, is what you’re telling me.”

Male Co-Worker #2: “Yeah. It fucked me up.”

Me: “You’re talking about a green liquid, supposed to make you hallucinate and shit?”

Male Co-Worker #2: “Yeah, abstinence.”

Me: “You’re talking about Absinthe.”

Male Co-Worker #2: “Absinthe?”

Me: “Yeah. Abstinence is something I don’t think you know much about.”

Male Co-Worker #2: “Whatever it’s called, it fucked me up.”

Male Co-Worker #2 then exits the backroom and approaches a female co-worker.

Female Co-Worker: “You look hungover.”

Male Co-Worker #2: “I got fucked up on abstinence last night.”

Female Co-Worker: “What?”

Me: “Sigh.”

Biographical information? I was born 37 years ago. I've lived a little here and there since then. I do not look forward to death. Biographical enough for you?
