Yeah, one of my colleagues told someone on a job interview that he used to be an alcoholic. So. Not. Appropriate.

Oh my. I just put my fingers in my ears and sing la la la la... which is better than having my fingers anywhere else suggested by the conversation!

Nah. It's a norm. Especially if you work in a department in which they work on a virus that causes prostate cancer.
