awkward office banter with an attempted Matt diffuser

Employee #1: "So ___, how did you hurt your back?"

Employee #2: "Oh - it just went out again. Happens a lot."

Employee #1: "Ha – it's because you're getting old!"

Employee #2: "No, this has actually been happening since college."

Employee #1: "Ha – no way! It's because you're getting old! Old man!"

Employee #2: "No. I compressed my spine in a rugby match in college and nearly ended up in a wheelchair."

Employee #1: *silence*

Employee #2: *silence*

Matt: "Ha ha – well, that's why I don't play rugby. That, and I wouldn't want anything to happen to my pretty, pretty face!"

Employees #1 and #2: *silence*

Matt: *silence*
