In a not-so-distant future:
Employee: Remember the plague of locusts I unleashed last month?
Manager (preparing to leave his chair) : Not really, but what's up?
Employee: Our customers are very upset; they are picketing at the main entrance.
Manager (fiddling with papers on his desk) : They need to check that gate, it has been acting up...
Employee: They snatched the project manager from his car while he was swiping his badge.
Manager (joyful after finding the form he was looking for) : I need to replace my badge...
Employee: They torched his laptop...and the car.
Manager: Well, let me know how it turns out, gotta run to my next meeting.
