Hiatus Territory Marker

Overheard in the Caravan:

Hay: "Where did you put your dirty clothes?"

Chairman: "In the bedroom."

Hay: "You've left them in a pile in the corner. Why do you do that?"

Chairman: "Male thing - territory marker."

Hay: "It is, isn't it? Just because you can't get down and do a poo in the corner to mark your territory, you leave your soiled clothing there."

No posts for a few days. Am at a global sales conference at HQ in Israel till Wednesday. Taken No. 1 son with me this time to give him an experience. Might wean him off his PS3, although that is perhaps too much to hope for.

Was going to fly BA, but I didn't relish the idea of showing the steward to his seat or serving him his lunch and drinks in return for the privilege of flying with him aboard. Went KLM instead.

We're all off to dinner tonight with the CEO; they've kindly No.1 son along too. Nice people. It is a refreshing change to work for a company led by nice people.

  1. I always remember a slogan from my 1968 days : "if you ever meet a good capitalist, shoot him quick before he goes bad". Have a good trip.
