" I have not been able to sit down with you to see how you are getting on... but I expect you to update me everynow and again on your progress. Pls update me through email. I need to know how far are you getting on with xxxx projects paid and claim and are you monitoring the xxxx monthly status reporting?"
Err... this email came from a colleague whose room is just next to mine. I could actually listen to her when she yaks on the phone, her door and mine - barely 3 meters away. And it's not like we don't see each other daily.
Well at least we aren't as bad as those who use internet messengers when their desks are actually side-by-side, are we now?
