The other day C. and I were talking about things you shouldn’t say to co-workers, or to anyone, for that matter.
C: “You should never say that you’re stomach hurts to anyone. Ever.”
Me: “Why not?”
C: “Because the person you’re talking to will immediately think, if not say, ‘Do you need to go to the bathroom?’ and that’s uncomfortable for everybody.”
C: “You should always just say you have a headache. Even if it’s your stomach.”
And there you have it.
