As Roger entered the office he overheard a colleague overshare, “I think I have a bigger belly now than when I was pregnant.”
Roger’s computer crashed three times. And because a document never arrived in his Outlook inbox from a “DOE approved” school due to a colleague’s negligence and his ignorance of office procedures, Roger had some considerable down time that he used to edit a cover letter for an adjunct position and read Rowe’s Nabokov's Deceptive World.
And SESIS went down for a scheduled maintenance earlier than scheduled. Consequently, Roger’s co-workers were, literally, dancing in the aisles.
Roger did not dance.
