You speak with forked tongue, Billy Two-Cheeks

It's not often I'm literally rendered speechless...

It's another Friday afternoon. T.Aldous toddles up with another piece of work he's been sitting on for three weeks which is now urgent.

"You're going to shout at me about this. This is urgent, can it be done by Tuesday?"

"I suppose I can try my best."

"I've been meaning to ask you to do it. It's very important."

"I can give it a go I suppose."

"So it can be done then?"

"Well... I can't give you any guarantees. I've got a lot on. I'll try my best."

"But it's a priority."

"Everything's a priority these days."

"Can't you prioritise then?"

How on earth did you stop yourself saying anything at that point? I think my reply would've involved plenty of swear words :)

I wish I could say it was pure professionalism but frankly I was gobsmacked
