In the elevator at work:
Man: "Work is my refuge from my kids."
Woman: "Hahaha. You're joking."
Man: "No, I'm not. When I get sick, [boss] tells me to go home but it's so much worse there. At least work is quiet and there aren't toys all over the place."
Woman: tightfaced, visibly angry, "Imagine how your wife feels, home all day."
Man: shudders, "I try not to."
