Body Language at Starbucks

I couldn’t hear a word they were saying, but I didn’t have to.

With his back to me, the man on the left was clearly in charge of the meeting. At first I thought the long-haired younger man was being interviewed for a job, but after a while, I decided he was more like a contractor who’d already gotten the assignment, and now the manager was explaining the project to him. The manager was doing most of the talking as they both looked at a document he had brought, gesticulating now and then to emphasize a point. The contractor mostly listened and nodded occasionally.

At least 10 minutes late for the meeting, a third guy showed up (if I’d known he was going to join this meeting, I would have left space for him in the first composition). It was obvious to me that he was there for political reasons – probably representing another team – because he wasn’t at all interested in what the other two guys were saying. Occasionally he’d sneak peaks at his phone or gaze out the window, his mind a hundred miles away. He had the best haircut of the three, though.
