Eli has been sitting at the table with the older guys for months now once his work schedule coordinated with theirs. It seems Hank gets easily riled over most trivial matters, but no more than politics. And being an older, Caucasian male, he is overly obsessed with Native Americans as well. Jeff whines about the same things every single day. He keeps saying he's going to do this, that, or the third, but he's been working there since they opened the facility, and hasn't done much. He simply has no follow through.
These two are definitely the headliners of this table and the most vocal, at least at the table. Someone forgot to tell these two middle aged men that it's just a job. They get all worked up, but outside of Hank reporting safety hazards, they don't do much to improve their situations. They are definitely Paul and John, Jordan and Mark, Ralph and Bobby, etc.
Nevertheless, these guys are very clueless regarding the changes made within the company. They often arrive at the last minute and aren't at the morning meetings/stand ups. Many, especially Hank and Jeff, don't communicate with management much except when something goes wrong or they are reprimanded.
Now Eli is the type to keep up and stay in the know and he hasn't been with the company very long. It's similar to complaining about things in your city and community, but not voting or expressing your voice. Often it seems to Eli that many guys at this table often blow off steam and are full of hot air.
How long of this ranting can Eli take? At first, it was funny, especially when Hank would be angry and red faced. Now it's really getting old and stale like, well, you get the point.
