The network went down at work today. This meant no one that I work with could really do anything. Soon we were all happily chattering away, throwing around a football and mocking those born with defects in their genitals.

One of the coworkers had to walk away, we became so gleefully mean-spirited.

"See," she said, "this is what happens when the network goes down. We run wild! We make trouble! They should never allow this to happen!"

"I'll be glad when the internet comes back up," I said, "so I don't have to talk to you people any more."
