Brian: Have you got a lot to do?
(Chris holds up a huge pile of papers)
(Chris holds up an even bigger pile of papers)
Chris: OK. Go for your gun.
Brian: Twenty copies of the Environmental Policy amendments. Beat that.
Chris: Two hundred double-sided copies of the cost-reduction strategy. Got ya!
Brian: Not a chance mate. Fifteen lots of forty pages of the new time management manual. Ta da!
Chris: Well, beat this…a hundred and fifteen copies of minutes from the meeting about how we streamline the minute taking process.
Brian: Damn, that’s good.
Chris: So, your round again then!
Brian: Wait a minute. I haven’t finished yet.
Chris: What you got then…?
Brian: One copy…
Chris: One copy? Ha bloomin’ ha…
Brian: One copy… of the managing director’s draft strategy document on product simplification.
Chris: One copy…
(Brian proudly holds up a huge wad of paper)
Brian: One copy, two thousand nine hundred pages…
Brian: Sixteen hundred pages of appendices.
(Brian holds up even more paper)
So, mine’s a double G and T.
Chris: Fair enough
