On long lunch breaks
Friday lunchtime, and my esteemed colleague approaches me with a question:
"I'm popping across to the Post Office. Do you want me to get you anything?"
After a moment's thought, I thank him for his kind offer and say:
"Yes. Yes I do. Could you hand this piece of paper to the cashier?"
It is now Monday, and he has not returned. That's what I call a long lunch break.
