I had a man phone the office just the other day. He wanted to \”invite the finance director\” to some kind of meeting or lecture. Now, considering that the finance director works about 200 miles away, he was pretty wide of the mark! However, as he was telling me how great this all was, what sounded like a small child wailed something in the background.
Oh dear… Well, sir, very sorry, but the finance director has gone home. No, I don’t know when he will be back. Now go and pick up your child and find out why it is gurgling at me!
Hard to look less professional, really.
