Why is Wanda at the bar?
I need to come to this bar to unwind after a crazy day at work. I work in an office and I’m stuck in a cubicle all day fielding calls, typing reports, there is little interaction outside my walls. I try to avoid people and just do my job. I don’t want to get involved in the water cooler talk. It just takes so much time an energy when you sit around and gossip. I know this, since one of my co-workers absolutely hates me. She starts her day by trying to insert herself into my job. Sipping her coffee, she peers at me from above her rim with wicked eyes. I wonder how she will mess with me today. I need to check in with her, since I am supposed to report to her. But I try my best to avoid her, and if I am in a situation where I do have to talk to her, I find some way to entertain myself by messing with her. I know it’s not right, but there is no way this person should be my superior. Every Wednesday we have a staff meeting after lunch, which drags on endlessly for hours. I usually go out to lunch at a nearby restaurant, where we normally hang out after work. I contemplate having a drink with lunch today, I know it’s going to be a bad one, but I don’t, I decide to just leave work early and hit happy hour at my favorite bar, where everybody knows my name. I know the bartender, he knows my drink. I love walking into the bar and the bartender or waitress says “the usual”. It’s comfort, it’s calm.
Why do I want to talk to him?
