» Sticking it to The Man

The Coke machine stole my 50p.
So I put a sign on it, saying, simply: "OUT OF ORDER -The Management".

The sign was there for nearly a week.

I got my 50p's worth.

» Encounters with Royalty

Not a sunbed in sight
When I was about 10, my dad decided we should drive up to Inverness (not that far from us) for the day out. A rather cold, miserable, proper Scottish summer day. On the way there, we were rather surprised to see two very nice Range Rovers waiting at a junction, letting all the cars in front of us past.

Naturally, being a complete stickler for the rules of the road, and a monarchist, my dad first noted: "Why's he doing that, he has right of way!" and, seconds later, "Bloody hell, it's Prince Charles!"Of course, we let him in front, and they stopped a short while later at a layby overlooking a huge moor, and the whole party got out with big rifles, off for a day's grouse shooting I should imagine. The best part was seeing the look on the faces of the two German tourists, who had just parked their caravan in the same layby and got out to check a map. Priceless!

I hope he didn't mention the war.

» Stupid Colleagues

Welcome to Academia
I briefly worked as an admin assistant to the principal of a major university. One day he called me into his office, to ask me how to insert a CD into his computer. He'd got as far as ejecting the tray, but then got stuck.

» Apparently I'm a sex offender

When I lived in student halls, saying "come in" automatically when a pretty girl from down the corridor knocked at my door.

Except, I was lying on my bed watching TV. With only a t-shirt on. Oops.

"I wanted to see if you were still looking for a flatmate for next year, but I guess I'll come back later"... ... ... for goodness sake.

I'm pretty sure the fact that I wasn't naked, but was wearing just a short t-shirt, made it worse.

» Unexpected Good Fortune

Oh yes
Recently graduated, unemployed, signed up with a job agency.

The first job I get is to cover 2 weeks for the PA to the head of the city's largest employer.

Now I'm getting personal job talks from the head of HR, the head of Public Relations, glowing references from the big boss and a word in with each of the CEOs/Chairmen/Managing Directors he meets...

Still haven't found a permanent job but what a difference 2 weeks can make eh!
