Thanks very much to KE, TC, AM and everyone else who contributed to my leaving cover.

Before you ask, I’m not going to elaborate on any of the cover lines; what happens in Dubai stays in Dubai.

What I will reveal, is that “kerfuffle” should read “kafoefel” – proving that every magazine needs a sub.

[T and AM  chatting to the 16-year-old “business development consultant”.]

16: So how old are you guys?
T: I’m 23 and she’s 21.
16: Really? That surprises me…
T: How old do you think we are then?
16: More like 18, 19.

Friendly conversation, special edition: on resigning

with 5 comments

T: Do you think it is inappropriate to wear my T-shirt that says, “Make the stupid people shut up,” to work on the day I resign?
AM: Maybe just a little…
T: Screw it; the writing is small, so I’m going to wear it anyway…


T: I have to go and have a chat with HR – the fun part of leaving.
ZK: I’m sure it will be fine.
T: I guess so…
ZK: If it’s not, you know, you could always resign!

AM: I don’t trust left-handed people.
T:  Why not?
AM: Most left-handed people are mass murderers.
T: I think you meant to say: “Most mass murderers are left-handed”?!
AM: Ja, that’s it.

AM: All the men I´ve dated have been good with their hands.
