them:. here is a 30 page document for you to sign…
me:I shall read it first and then if it is ok i’ll sign it.
them:hmmm… so you can’t just sign it?
me: err no…
them: ok i’ll wait until you have read it and then signed?
me: it can join the back of the queue along these other 3 or 4 things, I don’t mind you sitting quietly at my conference table, but I hope you’ve bought supplies as it will probably Monday afternoon before I am in a position to sign it on the assumption there is nothing wrong with it…

them: can I leave it with you and collect on Monday afternoon.
me: see this pile of exam scripts? they just arrived for marking, come back on Tuesday afternoon…

Being a tad yellow around the edges has its benefits. I have spent roughly £0 on booze for a year and a half (apart from an incident with @OzzyOzzyOzzyOiOiOi in Oxford), saved loads, and can get away with spending it all too!!!
You’re too old for that sort of thing - stick with the wine - it’ll keep you flaccid
Sure we used to have one of those at school, driven from a BBC Micro, if memory serves.
