Down by the water cooler

I know everyone is a busting their tail at whatever career they are in or trying to get into but I'm curious about the off times and breaks in the day at office.

What are some of the funniest, weirdest or craziest water cooler/around the office conversations you've heard or been a part of?

Thank you in advance for your response/stories

I heard a random conversation about a custody battle one of the employees was having. I felt bad but was mostly surprised at how much was shared especially at work.

Over heard conversations about a boss arguing with a sponse at work. Pretty heavy stuff

Yesterday I was at the business school and was talking to this guy about how he used to do whippets in high school. Doing whippets means huffing nitrous oxide from a whipped cream can or something and you get high for like 10 seconds. I think whippets are the reason why you have to be 18 to buy whipped cream or spray paint. I used to think whippets were an urban legend like Bigfoot or butt chugging but I now seem to be mistaken

I dont think I've ever laughed as hard as when I would watch my friends in high school do whippets. F*cking hilarious. My one friend could always be encouraged to do a few at every party. He would do a whippet, uncontrollably laugh for a few seconds, and literally pass out sometimes lol.

One of my friends mom found a bunch of the whipped cream cans one time and was like. "...are you guys doing whippets....??" Which we played dumb to, Hah.
