Office Gossip: Interesting Things Overheard At The Office
Last updated on March 18th, 2017 at 10:56 pm
The office happens to be a large part of the life of many of us. Some find romance in the office, others only have friends in the office.
I have heard of some of who have no life outside the office such that the never take up the annual leave or happen to be the ones who readily cover for colleagues whenever thay happen to be away on leave.
All the same, one thing is common in all offices: Office gossip , office talk if you like..
Taking a bit too long for the bosses pleasure stiring their mugs of coffee, standing by the coffee table (where else) two of my colleagues are discussing a workmate in hushed tones. The subject of the discussion happens to be an integral part of our little team and the only one who can do what he does. With the only other one on study leave, this fellow happens to feel quite indespensible at the moment. Expressing their displeasure at his apparent haughtiness
Female Colleague: You know, what he is doing is not right and this God of today wears shorts.
Male Colleague : (laughs) what do you mean God wears shorts!
Female Colleague: He (God) has no repect.
Male Colleague: (with an expectant wait) Meaning?
Female Colleague: Just like a boy, he knows no respect for who you are or what you are. (matter of factly) He pays in kind right before your eyes. What ever he is doing (subject of the talk) will be done to him right in this earth!
2. You Make Your Luck When Your Are Born
The first natural birth is an ask for many women. Natutally so it was for this young woman. Assisting her bring life into this world, were several persons. Some where there just for moral support, others were assistants in the delivery process. Yet inspite ofthis siezable team, the particular lady was having trouble pushing and as thus was placing the yet to be born baby in danger as the more prolonged the labour was secondary to poor maternal effort the more likely the baby would not survive. Nonetheless, thanks to the concerted efforts, she gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. As the cord was being clamped andcut and the boy took the first lusty breaths of life. In the midst of the collective relief and cheer..,
Birth assistant 1: Tell you what, you make your luck how you enter this world
Birth assistant 2: (absent mindedly still caught up in the joy of birth) Why?
Birth assistant 1: The more trouble you cause, don’t blame anyone if you happen to be one of those people who bad luck stalks….
Birth assistant 2: (laughing) Likewise, it could just mean you turn ot to be one of those ‘lottery-winning-type’ lucky people given that you had to struggle so much to enter this world…
