Now this is a must for the blogroll. I read about it in today’s Grauniad.
The Angry Receptionist is, well, an angry receptionist for a company somewhere in New York. Some of her (or his?) conversations are hilarious.
“Can I cancel the lunch catering today?” One hour before lunch.
“Well, we want to order pizza instead.”
“That’s fine, but I can’t cancel the catering.”
“Because you’ve only given me an hour’s notice and the order’s made and probably on its way already?” I say this as a question because I’m genuinely wondering if they don’t know that food just doesn’t appear from thin air.
“But…we want pizza instead!”
Even highly paid VPs (everyone’s a VP in the Angry Receptionist’s firm) behave like spoilt brats sometimes.
Straight onto the ‘regular reads’ she goes.
