Conversational Highlight No. 1

K: What was the name of that guy? That one I had on the photocopier for ages?

Much laughter ensues

H: Do you mean the phone?

K: Oh yes, sorry, the phone.

Fnarr indeed. I'd like to clarify that I was nought but An Innocent Bystander in this conversation.

Haha that reminds me of the time I asked someone to turn the CD over. Or at least I think that was what I said. Actually that doesn't even make sense, ignore.

I've been trying to think of something funny to say but it's just not happening, so can I instead just mention that our photocopier at work is hideously complicated to use.

Wyndham, I've been unsuccessfully trying to think of something funny to say for years. Your Ministry of Complacency post, on the other hand, is a stroke of genius. Your comedy karma is in the ascendant. I salute you.

And I should have said this on your blog, really, shouldn't I?

i once worked for the dss in the sickness benefits department. a colleague answered the phone one day with the words "hello, embezzlements" in a bright, chirpy voice. she had absolutely no idea where it came from.....
