8:30AM

Coworker Stress arrives, early, as usual, going on about something they wish they could change.

9:00AM

10:00AM

I begin to take over some aspect of the day that she usually does. She gives me dirty looks. Hey, she's gonna be leaving, I have to do this when she goes. She doesn't like that I take control.

3:30PM

Finally, I can go home. Maybe I'll sleep better knowing her time draws near. Am I a bad person?
