I was working at a rather large company’s corporate HQ in a quite shitty job with my headphones on.

One of my co-workers came into my area with a work order, so I took off my headphones and before I could say anything, she said, "Two planes just hit the World Trade Center, one on each side," gesturing with her hands.

“Really (or something like that)," I replied, immediately putting down my walkman.

I stood up and started to leave to go to the cafeteria, where there was a TV.

"Where are you going?"

"To... see... what… happened."

"Oh," she said before turning and walking back to her desk, presumably to get back to work.

When I got to the cafeteria, which was nearby, people were steadily streaming in as word spread throughout the corporate campus.

After some time, I walked back to my department to find everyone sitting at his or her desk, working. As if the most significant event in modern American history wasn’t happening at that very moment.

Just something I remember from that day.
