Scott worked long hours tapping away on the keys of his computer, occasionally interrupting his rhythm with a few clicks of his mouse. This middle-aged single man took his breaks like everyone else. Most of his coworkers drank coffee while posting pictures of their coffee on Facebook. A few others made the trip to the smoker’s area to squeeze in their smokes.
Scott did neither. He spent his breaks playing with his Hot Wheels. It didn’t matter who was in the break room. Scott would get down on the floor with a toy car in hand and drive the car around his floor space in the room. His coworkers carried on with their coffee and smokes as Scott wheeled around his die-cast metal toy.
However, once the break room was too crowded Scott took his cars outside. When he did, the break time turned into Scott’s showcase. His coworkers stopped drinking their coffee. They stopped smoking. Instead, they were busy about taking and posting pics of their quirky coworker playing with Hot Wheels.
