It’s really quiet in the office this morning.
All that can be heard is the tapping of keyboards and that angry/sleepy silence that can only be brought on by being at work at 6-fucking-30 in the morning.
The soothing silence was eventually broken by one of my colleagues asking a question to anyone who was listening…..or awake.
“Does ‘two sided’ mean ‘on both sides’?”
If it was at all possible, the silence got even quieter. You could hear a pin drop…..in London.
I replied (naturally), “Hmm, well, let’s think about it. Does two sided mean both sides? Whew, that’s a tough one…”
“I realize1 now, that was a stupid question.”, he replied.
Yes, yes it was.
1 Not a typo; he’s American.
