After reading "Pearl, Why You Little..."'s latest post about her time as an executive assistant, I was reminded of this:
Some years ago I was Chief Exec of a fairly well known (in the UK anyway) company - my recently hired 'executive assistant' came into our monthly board meeting, pulled up a chair, opened her plastic tub and started eating the contents. Responding to my raised eyebrow she explained, "You said I should bring sandwiches in at one o'clock." That was the first, and last, time I've witnessed eleven simultaneous facepalms.
