Coworker: (starting to wash his mug) Are you making coffee?
Coworker: Smells nice.
Me: Yeah, but it’s only regular coffee from a grocery store, nothing special…
Coworker: (finished washing, starting to dry the mug) Yeah, but still, freshly blended, smells nice.
Coworker: (dried his mug, leaving…) See you around! 🙂
That’s what I call unnecessary. Wouldn’t have silence just been better?
