A Real Mess
This article originally appeared in Outsource Magazine Issue #27 Spring 2012.
I love a good excuse – and here’s a genuinely great one. A colleague of mine was en route to a meeting at the end of February when his meet-ee called to let him know he wouldn’t be able to make their appointment. Of course my colleague started to take umbrage – but his wrath turned to hilarity when his acquaintance sheepishly explained his circumstances. Apparently, he had taken the morning off to show a relative around London and whilst doing a tour around Westminster he had had an unfortunate accident: he had slipped on, and fell into, a pile of horse manure… When he called, he was on his way home to change – presumably in a train carriage whose occupants were allowing him plenty of room to breathe… My colleague refuses to name names but some of you must know the gentleman in question, so please do spread the good word…
