Horrible Day at Work

I was at my old job. I went outside to smoke but felt nauseous so instead I sat down on some stairs inside the building. Jackie came in and asked if I was OK. I snapped, "I'm not pregnant!". She said she hadn't thought I was. I apologized and reminded her how everyone at that job was always speculating that I might be sleeping with JR. She agreed that must be annoying. Miranda walked in and asked if I was sick. I said yes. She asked if I was pregnant. I said no. She ignored me and began to try to calculate the date of conception, based on when JR and I had the same days off. I told Jackie I was going to rest on the other side of the building. I was walking past the door to the production floor when I noticed something strange inside. It was black, about 1.5 inches long, and crawling across the floor. At the same time, my phone rang. Someone said, "... we think they've been shut up in here somewhere for four years and somehow they got out and now they're really big". I realized the thing I saw was a giant fly. I screamed and ran. JR was in the hall behind me. I threw my phone at him and kept on going right out the door. I didn't intend to ever go back inside that building again.
