I don't drink. So that's out.

How come you don't drink? Disapproval, intolerance, contempt for drunks?

Along with the bruised knees, and heartfelt denials that the kebab was to blame for the rumbling internals!


Been there, done that, puked in the street, and steered the great white porcelaine bus!

I didn't realise that kicking someone in the groin, and telling them to grow up, could be such a hardship to you.

Tell me to f*** off if it's none of my business, but are you a CFO? In our company, it was the other way round, the CFO was the one who had the breakdown

You can't blame him for having a breakdown, having to work with you every day.

Not CFO, Controller. I was CFO at the other place and that nearly sent me over the edge.

She ... and she has a breakdown at least twice a week.

It had been coming for a while, since before I started, from what I could tell. He just stormed out in a hail of f-words and we all sort of had to pick up the pieces.

They're not planning on replacing the CFO here, the Staff Accountant (my direct manager) has now been made Controller and I'll probably pick up some of her old duties in the meantime.

Fun

I think Zargof was referring to the effect I might have been percieved to have had on our CFO, here ...
