Manhole Talk

It wasn't the kind of conversation you would expect two electric company employees to be having. They weren't talking about last night's baseball game or shop talk. Instead, the guy somewhere beneath the street's surface was discussing a pending move by someone in his family. The disembodied voice was telling the guy squatting over the manhole that "she" had always wanted to live in Korea. He hoped that the career move worked out for her.
