This is a somewhat unusual post – you may be
very a bit shocked. So if you are of Hamish/Mormon decent easily offended may I suggest you stop reading now.
The Artist and I are back at work. However, our brains are not back at work and
Cue, The Artist, Day 2 back at work in conversation with his PA. Just outside his door is the office administrator (herself a bit unusual and informal and prone to random outbursts when aggravated – she’s been working there longer than any partner on record FYI) and another partner in the business, also engaged in conversation.
He doesn’t miss a beat, calls out to the office administrator and does this…..
Obviously, the woman – who will remain unnamed, had a jaw-dropping moment.
You can only imagine what she thought (or didn’t apparently because this is supposedly not that unusual from either of them). But being of feisty stuff, she didn’t miss a beat (jawdrop aside) and responded in kind. Accompanied by some verbal.
Very well done Madame. The Artist assures me she is fond of some verbal, sometimes unprovoked, as was the previous initial inspired gesture. Hence the informality and all.
Can you imagine if we all worked in such a place? Would release a whole lot of tension I reckon and cut a whole lot of crap. Not to mention the laughs. Because you never know what’s coming. Do you?
Don’t think I’ll try the technique though – not sure most places are ready for it.
Love and light
