Office conversation

Overheard at the office – – –

Woman1: “Boy, I sure get bitchy when I’m tired.”

Woman2 (sotto voce): “Sheesh, she must not get much sleep, then.”

    hey that’s funny about them fighting behind your back. when I was looking after a friend’s cat once I couldn’t work out why he started looking much worse for wear. the household cat we had at the time was always acting sympathetically towards him, making soft concerned mewing sounds and gentle sniffing which we all thought was so cute
