Boss – Hello, good news! Turns out I will be in London on Wednesday next week.
Me – Ok… (waiting for the penny to drop but also calculating how many hours she will lose signal for during her travels (every cloud..))
Boss – and I have an hour free 12-1!
Me – Ok… (fear the punch line is coming)
Boss – Shall we have our 1:1 then?
Me – Ok… (there goes my lunch hour)
Boss – Great! So I’ll see you then!
Me – Erm… You want me to come to London? To see you for one hour?
Boss – Yes, is that a problem?
Me – No its no problem at all. The train journey is only 2.5 hours on the train, 40min on the tube, 30min on a bus and a 20min walk. No problem. At all.
Boss – Great! See you on Wednesday!
This is the last straw! She is definitely not getting a birthday present this year!!
