Colleague: I need to write up these reports, but I don’t want to.
Indy Clause: Do you have anything for writing group next week?
Colleague: *guilty look*
Indy Clause: You have time! Why don’t you write something now?
Colleague: What are you going to turn in?
Indy (ignoring obvious dodge): That essay I was talking about the other day. (Putting on a tone of false brightness) What are you going to turn in? *Pointed look*
Colleague: But, these reports….
Indy: Do they really have to be finished tonight?
Colleague: No, but…
Indy: Wouldn’t you rather be writing?
Colleague: Yes, but…
Indy: I’m helping you out! I’m trying to help you find time to write.
Colleague: Yes, and I appreciate that, but my work life…?
Indy to Colleague who is sort of her supervisor: I don’t give a fuck about your work life.
Indy: This is why they pay you the big bucks, and health insurance, and I am still a part-timer.
What are you doing this weekend?
