“I knoowwwwwwwww. Let’s go get drunk.”

“Oh my God, wait.”


“Let’s also send him a request to connect on LinkedIn six months from now.”

“After never calling him to tell him we hired somebody else?”

“What are you doing right now?”

“Carving satanic symbols into my forearms. But that can wait. What’s up?”

“Oh, it’s done. I just took her over to HR to get an ID badge.”

“So why are you posting it?”

“To give them hope.”
