Just an observation

I was talking to a mid-echelon union-buddy who used to work locally but has since been called on to bigger and better things out of the Vancouver office. He’s telling me and another guy about how his fellow walks into his office recently. “Can I help you?” asks union-buddy but it turns out that his visitor has, at best, absolutely no ability to speak English. They make noises and faces at one another for a solid forty-five minutes before it gradually becomes clear that his visitor it trying to arrange for some labour to build a house and has somehow got the wrong end of the stick by coming to a union office. Things became even less clear after that and the visitor eventually leaves in disgust. “Forty-five minutes?” I asked. “You’re exaggerating, right?”

“Nope,” answers union-buddy, obviously proud of the zaniness of the whole situation. “It was at least forty-five minutes.”

On the other hand…

I went to a manager’s office and after the usual hey how are you you’re looking good what’s up, we were down to business. Fifteen minutes later we’re done so it’s a hearty see you later and that’s all she wrote.

I’m not suggesting or insinuating anything. It’s just an observation

Anyway… Humouroceros
