Executive Inconvenience

Coworker:  You look angry.
Me: It’s 2PM, which is normally the time where I bullshit with Joe in the R&D lab.
Coworker: Is he doing something?
Me: No, there’s the general managers presentation in the lab.
Coworker: Presentations don’t usually stop you from bullshitting.
Me:  Yeah, but in this case, were I to go into the lab 19 out of 20 people could fire me.
Coworker:  Yeah, my personal limit’s about 50%.
Me: Good rule.  Is that your key to having stayed here for 15 years?
Coworker: One of them.
