Have added this post to another thread about answers to other peoples silly questions, thought it fitted in here too.
Just taken a phone call at work - "is Mr ********* about?", to which I answered "yes" followed by silence.
I think she meant "is Mr ******** available, can I speak to him".
She was obviously completely stumped and after a while repeated her question to which I replied, "yes he's at his desk". She still didnt get it, got in a strop and bellowed "well can i speak to him" I just quiely said "yes of course, I just thought you were enquiring as to his whereabouts".
Is this Old Fart progressing into Grumpy Old So-And-So. Hope So!
