Today's highlight

Posted by Claudia Moser on 3:17 PM in
Meeting with customer and supplier. One of the supplier's representative came on the site in a nice black suit, with a black and white tie, and a white shirt. We sit and chit chat at the beginning of the meeting. Then suddenly with a abrupt hand movement the representative manages to get his cup of coffee falling down from the table on the floor and half of the content lands on his shirt. His (because HE is a HE!!!)reaction? Oh God, I'm dirty, please get me a napkin. And another one! Don't you have an extra? Where are the stains? Oh my shirt! And my tie! And my shoes! And my gorgeous pants!

For the next 4 hours I watched him (and there are guys saying that we women are like a mimosa!!!) how he was feeling nervous, not finding his place on the seat, analysing his shoes, his tie, his shirt for at least 20 times. Toilet was visited for at least 3 times, each time the stains getting bigger and bigger (hint: use cold water immediately after the stain occured, it does not help later to use soap and warm water)

This is an experienced guy who was unable to focus for more than 4 hours due to some coffee stains! Unbelievable!!!

Hilarious...wonder if he knows he gave you some GREAT blogging material ;)

Hee Hee! Love that post today. That poor guy though - he must have been a nervous wreck by the end of the day!

@Desiree & Diane - yes, it was really funny, but still don't get why he was so destroyed :)

Poor baby.... Get a grip. It was spilled coffee for pete's sake. I bet his home is "perfect" too.

Not much self-confidence, I think. He should have run to a store and bought a shirt and tie so he could relax!

@Barb - I guess you are so right!
@Belle - well, the next big shop according to his standards (he drives a Ferrari and he lets everyone know) would have been at 1000 km distance, so that was hard on him :)

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
