The other day, on a bus from work, I met a friend of mine that I hadn't seen for ages. We were best pals during the high-school times and we used to spend hours chatting about everything that crossed our minds. And so we did this day. Only the subject was different: he was all about his work, colleagues and boss. Obviously, when ones spends almost the whole day at work, such topics somehow automatically gain importance. But examining the diversity of dialogue openers is not my goal. What aroused my curiosity was that his workplace experience was that of a person who works together with several generations under one roof.
