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.
