"Hey, can you send me that article you were talking about?" a manager from another department asks me at the bottom of the escalator.
"Sure," I say, texting him a link to an article I found quoting several City Council members calling for the mayor to shutdown New York City before the pandemic spreads further.
"I'm hoping they don't really shut things down until Wednesday, 'cause it's Saint Paddy's Day, and my wife's makes like, half her money for the year bartending that day," he says.
"I'm not one to take away from anyone's money, but... you hear yourself, right?" I ask as gently as I can.
