In the Workplace of the Immortals

“Congratulations, Bob.”
“On what?”
“On being with the company 21,417 years.”
“Sez who?”
“Says the email that went out this morning. Didn’t you see it?”
“Apparently not.”
(pause)
“I guess I can retire soon.”
Uproarious laughter. Followed by somber realization. Followed by uncomfortable silence.
