*Lill calls Jill at work*
Lill: I think we should get a garden hose – thoughts?
Jill: We live in an apartment building with a cactus – we have no need for a garden hose Lillian.
Lill: But we live on the 15th floor – just think of all the wonderful possibilities…
Jill: *Sigh* While I’d love to humour your crazy and encourage your deviant ambitions, right now I need to hang up and manage a work situation.
Lill: Hmm…whenever you refer to a ‘work situation’ it usually involves Colin The Incompetent.
Jill: *Sigh* He’s writing a report.
Lill: Colin can write?
Jill: It’s on improving workplace efficiency and timeliness without adversely effecting performance.
Lill: Colin can tell time?
Jill: He’s been working on it since Christmas and we’ve lost two clients due to mismanaged resources.
Lill: A Captain of Commerce in the making…
Jill: The problem is I don’t know how to get him to propose the most obvious recommendation.
Lill: Which is?
Jill: To fire himself.
