I once said in a meeting why is it called close of play, surely the end of work is the start of play.

I've subsequently stopped trying to makes jokes in meetings.

Hi Winckle, I pride myself on my emotional intelligence. If there's a different terminology you’d like me to use please don’t hesitate to let me know, and I’ll realign my comms going forward.

Regards,

Someone who must be pissed if they’ve dropped the 'kind' from 'kind regards'

Hope you are keeping well in these unprecedented times. I just wanted to check Ad is ok as I tried giving him a call earlier but didn’t get an answer.

I just need him to do all this work by close of play - if he isn’t available would you be able to do this instead?

Stay safe.

Kind regards,

Whoever is trying to call Ad

I leave my desk at lunch so people can't call me.

I mute my phone at lunch so I don't know it's going off.

I'm getting moaned at because some client never gave me her name so I just called it User - issue rather than Name - Issue.

The issue was the user didn't read the instruction email she was sent. No Karen, I'm not going to call her back and get her name so I can put it on the ticket.

I do have to join webex meetings some times. The strawberry floating voice that greets you on that is so annoying. :dread:

"HELLO! AND WELCOME TO THE MEETING!"

strawberry float OFF!

Can you repeat that helpful primer on how to correctly calculate VAT because I'm pretty sure I have done that thing your manager was doing that was wrong before (possibly more than once :shifty:)

(It's OK, I only ever do this to write purchase orders that my supplier then corrects for me lol)

You mean the "add 20% to the ex vat", rather than "remove 20% from the inc VAT price" conversation?

Bastards on eBay stealing both your photos and description for their listing. Lazy strawberry floaters!
