Let's Table this Break-Up

I have a coworker who's having trouble with her boyfriend. She doesn’t tell me about these problems, but she does have a penchant for printing out all of her personal emails and leaving them lying in the printer tray. If you’re going to do that, you might as well forward these emails to the whole company, because of course I’m going to read them. Consequently, I learn a lot about her without ever having had more than a 30 second conversation with her. Each day, I search the pile of paper for new installments of the saga, my own personal workplace soap opera. For the record, he drinks too much, got laid off, and “isn’t the greatest” at sex.

Anyway, she was apparently “this close” to leaving him, but decided against it because they just bought new furniture for their apartment. With barstools and a booth, her place now has a “cool retro diner” feel, which she wants to experience for at least six months before giving it up. Some couples stay together for the kids, others for the décor.
