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.
