Dialogue/Story

Mitch:  How was work today?

Nancy:  Terrible. Nobody could get along and the name-calling started early.

Mitch:  Did anybody throw a tantrum or act out in some other way?

Nancy:  Several did. At one point, a couple of them stomped out and slammed the door, but they eventually came back. I wish they’d given each other the silent treatment instead.

Mitch:  So there was yelling?

Nancy:  Lots of yelling. They tried to talk over each other and wouldn’t take turns. After a while, I wanted to demand some quiet time, but no one would have paid me any attention.

Mitch:  That sounds like a lot of posturing. At least it didn’t devolve into hitting and biting.

Nancy:  Not yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there is plenty of that next week when the Congressional subcommittee on peacekeeping meets again.
