Office medusa

A very good afternoon to everyone…

…except for the woman who has spent the last hour pacing up and down the corridor outside my office on a very loud, very personal phone call.

After gently asking her to keep it down, she quite literally hissed at me.

So that was nice.

Her office is on the other side of the building, so she quite intentionally came over here to make her call. I’m not the first person who has had to have a word with her about her phone calls and the volume she speaks at. And, based on what others have told me, I appear to have got off quite lightly with a hiss…

I’ve said it before and I’ll said it again: when I’m benign dictator of this country, I’ll ban people using speakerphone in public.
