PITTSBURGH, PA – The possibility of rain later in the day briefly revitalized a lagging conversation between two coworkers this afternoon as they were riding an elevator together.
At first the conversation had started well, according to one coworker. But after discussing the latest IT memo the two struggled to find topics to talk about. Even though the elevator ride was only 14 floors and took less than a minute, the awkward silence was palpable, according to the other coworker. Luckily, the chance of evening showers as reported by the morning news made descending the last few floors bearable, both later admitted.
