Because there's nothing majorly interesting happening here, just...
- "We're a German company, so you get German holidays off. In addition to the Dutch ones, of course." (administration)
- "I'm having a party and you're invited. It's a themed thing, though. You ever heard of Queen?" (my office mate)
- "Is anyone interested in going indoor climbing? We want to build a group to go once a week." (a co-worker)
- "I couldn't care less about when you go on vacation and what you do there. Just let me know in advance." (my boss)
