The brightest students are competing to enter this program for it's reputation and employment rate by the top notch companies in the industry(Microsoft, Google, Apple, Tesla etc).

    Person 2: The hell is mechatronics?
    Person 1: Story short, we're going to build robots!

                          Thought this could be on Slack which would make audience even smaller. "I've done my part in the movement since I discussed it in my private Slack group."

                        Mr Reynholm (the big boss): Jen, did I just see you googling “IT manager”?
                        Jen (the IT manager): Um…

                          Larry: We could email them an invitation link.
                          Steve: That will get the lemming clickers, but the majority won't click through.

                            Dave: Did you see that Tom promised the client that end-to-end encryption would be in the next release?!
                            Larry: But we don't control the user's operating system - how is that even possible?
                            Steve: Somebody better give that marketroid a crash course in reality.

                                A total poser. He had a MBP and iPhone. Even a decent tat. But he didn't have a Moleskine. That's what gave it away that he wasn't a real serious UX Designer.
