You’re right! You caught me! I did it. I flushed your death meth bye bye down the toilet. You’re lucky you didn’t end up there first. Now it’s time for another even more expensive life-changing experience. It’s called REHAB! Pack your crap. I’m calling a cab.

Yes, you’re right! NSA: Big Bad Big Brother. Yes, that’s right, big enough and bad enough to keep you and your loved ones out of harm’s way! You should be grateful.

Yes–you’re absolutely right.  It’s true. I was mistaken. I was mistaken to think that you’re a decent human being! That mistake has been corrected and now it’s time for me to move on. Goodbye.

Yup, I’m late to yet another weekly meeting–last week there was an accident–two weeks ago there was construction–today it was the fire. Who knows what it’ll be next! Let’s explore using our video conferencing capabilities for three of the four meetings we have each month, and keep one meeting face to face–with a flexible start time. That way, we’ll save money, start most of our meetings on time, and generally, be more productive. What say?
