Rebel Without a Clause

Board-Room

8:47 AM Bob: Stole coffee from board room…went with breafast blend…and apple…

9:02 AM Me: Stole? So I’m Cool Uncle. You’re the Degenerate?

9:03 AM Bob: …rebel…

9:07 AM Me: Right. Rebel. Criminal. Reprobate.

9:14 AM Bob: …no fighting for little guy..why do some get free coffee…whiles others have to pay….43 cents…Kuerig vs Nescafe…I am a revolutionary…the [deleted] Farragut…tearing down the walls of privilege…between the haves and have nots…those expemt and we that are non-exempt…( could you here the battle hymn of the republic …faintly…while reading that last bit…)

9:15 AM Me: Farragut was admiral, who was fighting rebels, not supporting them. (Dummy.)

9:16 AM Me: Battle Hymn was Union anthem, also not a rebel thing but a law and order thing. Evoking Grant, Sherman, etc. Repression. Farms and homes ablaze.

9:17 AM Me: But, OK. You’re a rebel. Who else did you give the fancy coffee to? Who are the Have Nots you are uplifting?

9:22 AM Bob: …duh…I was attempting to describe my actions …as those…adverse to the repercussions for getting caught…

9:23 AM Me: Adverse? Or averse? Should I send you some dictionaries and history books for your birthday?

9:24 AM Me: But back to the point, Msr. Danton. Who else did you give coffee to? Or are you pigging it yourself??

9:25 AM Bob: Baby steps…baby steps…first the spark…then the kindling…then the log…lead by esample…sow the seeds…for equality…on the second floor…

9:31 AM Me: Yes. So. Dumb, thieving rebel uncle?

11:18 AM Bob: Wait…just…secured…cart of sodas…from the R&D conferance room…and distributed them to…the minions in the lab…keeping nothing for myself…

11:28 AM Me: That’s step. But really more like Robin Hood. Not Kerensky, you know, or Jefferson. Perhaps Robespierre, but with more guillotine and no politics.

11:30 AM Bob: Lincoln Leadership Team has catered luncheon…tomorrow…I think I will spirit away dessert table to customer service folks…need to work out logistics…will keep you posted

11:45 AM Bob: Just scored…sugarless gum from…associate director of quality systems desk…left calling card…thanking him for contribution towards the cause…

11:52 AM Me: So, not Robin Hood as much as Ronald McDonald?

11:53 AM Bob: Sh-h-h-h…the pilot lab guys are curious as to my presence…
