Geoff was having a perfectly cordial conversation with his new coworker Pia, until the latter casually referred to Geoff’s team as a bunch of code monkeys. Geoff stiffened slightly, but the complete lack of regret or shame in Pia’s voice and on her face as she continued speaking made it clear this wasn’t a simple error but an actual faux gambade.
