Tales from the office this week

An office fact:

* "Oh sorry I was on mute" = "Actually I was multi-tasking and wasn't listening to a word of that"

Another office fact:

* All meetings end with the same decision; Let's have another meeting.

A thing I enjoyed:

* A new metaphor: "that could really blow up a can of worms". I had visions of a splattering of bloody wriggling worm parts all over the office for the rest of the day.

A thing I did not enjoy

* Getting in a lift at 4.30pm with somebody who was clearly leaving for the day. I work on the 6th floor and needed to get the ground floor for a meeting. They got on at the 5th, and got out again on the 1st to buy a snack.
