Amina: What’s the lowdown on the new guy?
Earl: Which new guy?
Amina: You know, the cute one. Fill me in. Is he single?
Earl: I don’t know. I have no idea.
Amina: You’re working with him side-by-side and you haven’t gleaned any personal information about him?
Earl: We talk about work. It’s not my job to pry into his personal life.
Amina: I need to get the scoop on Mr. Perfect and you’re my source.
Earl: You don’t know anything about him, so how do you know he’s perfect? Maybe when you get to know him, you’ll find out he’s a selfish, self-centered jerk.
Amina: Wait, catch me up on what’s going on here. Have other people asked you about him?
Earl: Yeah, maybe about a dozen of the women in this office. They’ve been bombarding me with questions.
Amina: Oh, sorry. I didn’t know.
Earl: Yeah, I’m not the guy’s social secretary. You women have to satisfy your own curiosity elsewhere.
Amina: Point taken, but do you know if he’s shown interest in any of the dozen women you’ve talked to?
