Modern Office Life is Rubbish

A former colleague of mine used to fill pages of the departmental 'Incident Book' with garbage like this. I always thought his behaviour was sharply at odds with the fact that he had been awarded the MBE, at some point in his life. Perhaps it's all to do with medals...or the longing for one?

Simon Dempsey and David Thorne are the same person, aren't they?

I miss Dave, but don't tell him.

Martin: Meddling may come into it. The very best spoofs are those which teeter on believability.

Dave: You're not fooling anyone. How is life in the Trossachs?

Scarlet Blue said...

No comment.
But Macy might be in for a surprise.

Rog said...

Dave: You're not wrong there.

Christopher said...

Wonderful! Vol. 2 - David 'Gareth Keenan' Thorne's complaints about S. Dempsey, please.

Is there life in the Trossachs? Is Dave the man to discover it? Is Dave the hoarse whisperer?

Z said...

If Dave is a little hoarse, does that make him a Shetland Pony?

Rog said...

Stop it you all! Scarlet Dave would be mortified if he knew we were all talking about him whilst he's on holiday from being retired. Give the Man/Woman a break! I've taken a vow of Scarlet Dave Silence and that's all there is to it.

I'm not sayin' nuffink guv'nor.

Hopefully, he won't come a cropper with a truck carrying Omega3 products.

Rog said...

Thanks Roses. Omega 3? I'm sure his injuries would be merely Super Fish Oil.



Aye Thangyou!

Macy said...

I've decided I have a highly unsuitable crush on David Thorne.

Roses - I don't drive a truck!!

I was fine until "super fish oil" and that made me spit wine on my keyboard.
...goes off in snit...

Pat said...

It was worth the trip just for that - SFO!

Rog said...

Macy: Simon Dempsey would be a safer choice for an accountant!

Dinah & Pat: I just wish I could claim credit for inventing that joke myself. I could claim credit but that would make me very super fish oil.

Mike and Ann said...

If it turns out that Dave is really painting the scenery in the Trossachs would that make him Arty Fish Oil ?

Rog said...

Mike & Ann: That was worth waiting for! And that's a fish oil!

Dave said...

Scarlet and I are now back from our little break, and are ready to resume our duties being retired.
