Either I’m part Kryptonian…
Currently I can hear, to my left, someone having a call on their speakerphone. I can hear them and their other party quite clearly.
On my right, I can also hear the other party on his speakerphone with the person’s voice from my left blaring from their speaker.
I actually haven’t developed super-hearing, their desks just aren’t that far from each other. They could accomplish the same thing by yelling, which they practically are already. They aren’t talking about anything that would require them both to be at their machines — I’m not eavesdropping so much as I’m not taking extreme measures to block out their conversation — they just don’t want to get up and walk the…30 or so paces it would take to meet face to face. And apparently neither one has the strength or inclination to pick up their handset, just push buttons.
