Or one of my favourites - "Hello is that you? Its me here" Of course it is. And of course who can forget "Who's calling?" "Mary" This is what I call Madonna syndrome - some people can have just one name, but the rest of us need a surname O:| O:| O:|

Regular questions are....... Them: If I post this today will it get there tomorrow??? Me: Eh - hold on and I will switch on my An Post tracking system I want to do x with this spreadheet, can you come here and have a look... Me: Have you tried it already? Them: No Me: Well why don't you try first and if you have a problem then we'll have a look!!!! O:| O:|
