How Many Waiters To The Dollar?

The Boss : "How many diners do you get?"

Here's me : "Is this a joke? Are you sure you're telling it right?"

The Boss : "Don't be funny."

Here's me : "OK."

The Boss : "So?"

Here's me : "What?"

The Boss : "How many diners do you get to the pound?"

The penny should have dropped for me by now, but I'm very tired.

Here's me : "I wish. Just for once. That I knew. What in the flying blue fuck you were talking about."

The Boss : "How many Arabby Diners?"

Here's me : "Wha?"

The Boss : "Durham?"

Here's me : "Wha?"

I'll spare you the rest of this exchange but it turns out the question I was being asked was "What is the exchange rate of (United Arab Emirates Dirhams) to Pounds Sterling". For fuck's sake, like.


  1. Does this seem like your boss?

  2. "but have fluent, grammatical speech"

    Um, no. :)

  4. I've recently read back on all of your office antics - gotta say, if you don't end up launching this woman out of a window, one day you could end up publishing this masterpiece and make millions.

    Keep it up! (Sorry but) this insanity makes me laugh every time I read it!

  5. What, and give up all this? No way! ;)

    Thanks for the kind words Greg :)
