Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XXXI

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:27 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I pushed open
      the bathroom door
            and walked in.
The place
      was empty
except for one guy
      washing his hands
            at one of the sinks.
I went to another sink
      and turned on the faucet.
Nice day, isnt it?
      he asked.
Not particularly,
      came my glum reply.
Gotta problem?
      he queried.
I looked over
      at him.
I didnt recognize him,
      but that
      didnt mean anything -
            its a big organization.
