New Guy At Work

We have this new guy at work. He’s not said a word to anyone outside the meetings he has with his boss. He’s a web developer. He’s given a specification document, dons his headphones and just taps away.

Today, curious, when he was away from his desk, I put on his headphones to just see what made the guy tick. Pressing play I heard screams. Not the screams of a death metal band vocalist, but the tortured sounds of women, and animals, building to a crescendo, then a tap on my shoulder. I ripped the headphones off.

“I can make you a copy if you want?” He said grinning from ear to ear.

I haven’t spoken to him since.
