So, we have only recently shifted to a new office closer to central London. I met a colleague (who works very closely with the President of the company)in the kitchen post a very heavy lunch.
The conversation that ensued was as follows:
Colleague A: Hi.
A: How are you?
Me: Very good, Thank you. You like the new office?
A: Oh yes, it is lovely, isnt it?
Me: Yes, isnt it?
Me: I just wish we had an XYZ room
A: We will!
Me : really ? (very amazed that the company was actually thinking of it)
Me: Wow! I mean really Wow!
*I shake my head, very impressed*
A: It is going to be amazing.
Me: I have no doubt!
Me (wondering if i should actually say this): I think I will be in it all the time.
A: I think the President is going to be in it all the time!
Me( shocked but still polite): Really! How nice.
*I start to think somehting is not right about the conversation*
A: Yeah, she is going to be in it ALL THE TIME
Me: Are you sure?
A: OK then, see you around.
Me: Yes, sure, see you around.
I strikes me as I make my way back to my desk. What A was talking about was a TP room (telepresence room, which is a lot like Teleconfrencing).
What I was talking about was a sleeping room.
Next post: Thursday!
