On Sunday afternoon, Chris had a revelation. Last week he spoke with a co-worker, Steph if you must know, about leaving the job. He mentioned how there’s little to no work for him in accounting and how his days are spent reading reddit and shitposting at Twitter on the sly.

On Friday he returns after a legit day off, Wednesday’s cardiac stress test, and an illegitimate day off on Thursday which brought the news of a catheterization on the horizon and a possible stent. Chris is still freaking out, believing every single creak and ache is a harbinger of the end.

First thing he notices is Chrome’s privacy mode was disabled. Also his asshole co-worker, M for simplicity’s sake, was ordering him around with nonsense.

The revelation was whatever Chris told Steph went straight to the Vice President (VP), or the Administrative Manager, or M. She was coming across as so friendly that he reckons it was all a ruse to crack the cipher of Chris. Typically Chris is tight lipped and doesn’t let slip anything about his personal life, but since he was growing fond of Steph and misreading how she was acting towards him, she was probably the eyes and ears of the VP.

Not really surprising. On Friday the 12th of July, during a farewell repast with co-workers, he heard from L about how the company’s president was super paranoid. The example she shared concerned a post made on her Facebook timeline. The company president thought L was Vaguebooking about her job, asked the VP to call her in and call her out in private, and her Facebook post was just a great big nothing which the company president misconstrued the context.

In short, all ears go back to the Vice President and the President.

Lesson learned.
