Today is Administrative Professionals Day In America, if anyone has any clue what the leaping larry that is, feel free to keep it to yourself.
Expanding on my previous Suggestion of a national day for England and prior comments about helpdesks, here is my new and most cunning propoisal, yet. Global Indian Helpdesk Amnesty Day. For one glorious day of the year, all the industrious little beavers in Bangalore can take the day off and go to the beach or to the flea market and trade credit card numbers etc. While we will have the entire day to phone any service or business we want to, relaxed in the knowledge that we won't be diverted to someone who can barely understand our problems let alone sort them out.
Of course, Belgium isn't known for it's service culture and I can't speak any of the official languages so for me, personally, it might end up as a frying pan - fire situation. Hmmmm, seemed like a good idea at the time.
Oh, the title, outside the office about 15 minutes ago, a complete stranger walked up to me asked for directions to Paris. I sent him to the gas station to buy a map.
