IT guy: Oh, good I’m back to the top of your fa­vorite peo­ple list.
Sales as­sis­tant: What? William* the hot A/C guy got bumped down?
IT guy: William’s gone; he’s off the list.

Sales as­sis­tant: That’s my ger­bil! We’re talk­ing about the A/C guy now.

IT guy: Ed breeds the ger­bils.
Sales guy: I breed them just for you. Hair­less, claw­less ger­bils.
Sales guy: You don’t want one with claws..
Pe­ter: Go to to get your hair­less ger­bils.

3PM As­sign­ing Per­son­nel

Ac­count man­ag­er: Hey, [the cus­tomer] wants us to come in and make a pre­sen­ta­tion. Are you avail­able to come with me next week?
Sales di­rec­tor: No. What I’m plan­ning to do is to put to­geth­er an en­tire project team — sales, mar­ket­ing, en­gi­neer­ing, qual­i­ty, man­u­fac­tur­ing, maybe even fi­nance. I want to show that we have a com­pre­hen­sive cross-func­tion­al team in place, so that we look like we know what we’re do­ing, no mat­ter that the cus­tomer asks.
Ac­count man­ag­er: That sounds great. Who else is gonna be on the team?
Sales di­rec­tor: Well, it looks like just me and you for now. Ask me again next month.
