I’ve decided I’m allergic to my desk. Does that mean I get to go home?

To: Peter@...
From SuziQ@...
Time: 3:07 pm

Not likely. I’m sure you will manage not to succumb to your allergies for two more hours.

To: SuziQ@…
From: Peter@...
Time: 3:21 pm

I’ve solved the allergy problem. I got all the paper towels out of the bathroom, taped them together and made a nice table cloth. Unfortunately I accidentally trapped all my data entry under the paper towels.

Accidentally?

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time 3:25 pm

Well, it was almost accidental.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time 3:35 pm

What are the chances we can get out of here early?

To: Peter@...
From: Suzi@...
Time: 3:35 pm

Slim to none.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time 3:37 pm

Is the emphasis on the slim or the none?


To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time 3:40 pm

Have you cleaned off your desk yet.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time 3:41 pm

Yeah, one of the marketing guys came by and wanted to use the paper towel table cloth for something. Knowing marketing I decided I didn’t want to ask why and just gave it to him.

o.O

Hey, can you come over to my desk for a minute? I need to ask you a question about the report you submitted yesterday.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:01 pm

Sorry, can’t. I’m busy.

To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time 4:01 pm


Okay, I’ll bite. What are you doing?

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:07 pm

I figured out what marketing wanted with the paper towels. I never thought of playing golf with spit wads before. Hey, does the paper towel dispenser in the bathroom on your side need a key to open?

To: Peter@...
From SuziQ@...
Time: 4:08 pm

I refuse to allow you to take all the paper towels out of the bathroom!!!!!!

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time 4:09 pm

Too late, looks like someone already grabbed them. Don’t worry, I’ll grab you a handful that you can keep at your desk. I’ve got a bunch stashed away in my bottom drawer along with a roll of toilet paper just in case they get any funny ideas about that.

To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time: 4:15 pm

Are you going to come look at that report sometime today?

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time 4:15 pm

Oops. Sorry. I’ll be right over.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:35 pm

Is it time to go home yet?

To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time: 4:36 pm

You’ve got less than a half an hour to go. Why don’t you try getting some work done? It may help you pass the time.
To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:36 pm

I’m not that desperate yet.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:40 pm

20 minutes isn’t going to kill anyone.

To: Peter@...
From SuziQ@...
Time: 4:42 pm

That’s right. Which is why we’re staying.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:50 pm

Didn’t we come in 10 minutes early this morning?

To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time: 4:51 pm

Nope.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:56 pm

I’m going to start closing down my computer and gather my things.

To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time: 4:57 pm

Peter, you’re not going to believe this.

To: SuziQ@...
From: Peter@...
Time: 4:59 pm

Please don’t tell me we have to stay late. Please don’t tell me we have to stay late.

To: Peter@...
From: SuziQ@...
Time: 4:59 pm

Oh don’t pout. It’s only going to take me 2 more hours to finish this.

To: SuziQ@...
From Peter@...
Time: 5:00 pm
