A Funny Work Story
So there once was a guy who was at work and decided he needed to pee. He gently got up from his seat and made his way to the toilet only to find his coworker, inside the restroom with the door open, washing his hands after moving old boxes around.
“Oh, hey wassup,” said the guy.
“Just washing my hands,” said the coworker. “I’ll be done in a second.”
The guy, being the gentleman that he was, waited patiently outside and held the door open for his coworker as he finished drying his hands and began to walk out. As the coworker passed the guy, he expressed his gratitude with a simple, “thanks man.”
“No prob dude,” said the guy as he started to close the door. Now, this routine action of closing a door was one in which the guy had previously performed in his life countless times. One would say he was rather skilled in this practice and could have performed this many times with his eyes closed with consistent results. On this specific occasion however, there seemed to be unforeseen difficulty involved…for when he started to close the door, he did not move his feet and subsequently closed the door rather hard on his forehead. There was a loud knock as something hard as solid wood hit something hollow as say…oh a hollow head.
The coworker instantly replied, “Whoa! You okay man?”
“Yea, it didn’t hurt,” replied the guy as he shamefully crept into the bathroom quickly.
…and in the bathroom he stood, pain searing through his forehead as he looked at the mirror in front of him that displayed a nice red vertical line above his grimacing face. The reality hit as he would have to live the rest of his life with this mark of shame on his forehead, forever…or until after he finished peeing, washed his hands and applied some neosporin on the wound to prevent himself from resembling Harry Potter.
What you thought was going to be a comedy actually turned out to be a tragedy. What a twist!
