We didn't have a meeting yet again. Not on Monday. Not on Wednesday either. Ugh. It's like this. One of our colleagues had a misbehaving desktop system. Its gut must have been wrenched sore for all the hacking-at-the-keys it had to endure because it took 72 hours to fix the mess. And in the meantime this harried colleague had to make do with a laptop. Our laptop! So we didn't have our meeting.
These were the asides a keen ear would have picked up on this fiasco:
"Pha! Laptop held up meeting?" followed by the I-don't-believe-you look
"Itu ellam excuse-a"? Translation: "Is that an excuse?" and eyes roll
"Will we have it at least next week?" or will you conk, in turn… is the unsaid half of this loud aside
"Next week the conference room aircon won't work. So we'll have the meeting the week after next..."
