You and the person next door to your office are on the same team. You are often in each other’s office. Sometimes the conversation is personal, but majority of the time you are bouncing ideas off each other.
Another coworker sees you two together and says, “We are running out of office space. Since you two are together all the time, maybe we can put you in an office together.” She’s joking, but she’s serious, you dig?
How would you take this remark? By the way, both you and your coworker are black women. Does that change the way the remark should be considered?
