My colleague in the London office told me today:
J: The guy sitting beside me smells so bad, I had to enjoy my breakfast in the (company) kitchen.
Me: So what does he smell like? Did you not tell him about his smell? Didn't the people sitting on his other side tell him?
J: Today it's a different smell. This time it's sweat. And, he's sitting next to the wall.
Me: Well ask the wall to tell him!
J: I would, but it's like talking to the wall.
