“I’ll get it done tomorrow Sir,” replied Deepak, coughing again.

Employee relations with employees on their way out was usually tiresome barring exceptions, but ever since Covid-19, the excuses came easier.
“Thanks Sir,” said Deepak, as he disconnected and switched his focus to his McDonald’s meal, ready for the next Netflix run of the day.
