The Elevators

I work on the 25th floor of one of our high-rises at Mega Corporation One. There are 26 floors in this particular building. Because I like to use my time wisely, I take the elevators. We could argue whether that's a wise use or not, but there it is.

One of my hobbies is creating backstory and conclusions for conversational snippets. Today, I heard this exchange:

Her: It must be hard.

Him: Yes, I see her when I go to that department.

Her: She is still my friend on Facebook.

Him: It's hard to completely disengage.

Most people would create a "breakup" backstory. I decided to create a backstory where she is an alien who used a faulty mind control device on Him.
