DColleague wasn't at work at 830 as per usual. GHet a voicemail on our phones that his car has broken down, he's going to take it to the garage and will head in as soon as he can etc etc.

This colleague is lovely but sometimes just waffles on about nothing at all when you are busy doing something. And then even when you say, I'm just in the middle of something, I need to concentrate now shut the hell up said colleague carries on rabbiting on.

So.... I'm in the office on my own grin Music on, happily not being nattered to about inane rubbish and taking a quick break to go on MN

I am going to hell for revelling in this arent I?

Well, he's going to tell you all about his dramatic car breakdown when he gets in, ad nauseum, so you're alright grin

OK own up.

What did you do to his car? wink grin

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 11:43:35

Nuffink...Honest grin

It is a 1999 car so definitely susceptible to break downs....

Ahhhh a hot brew in peace grin

Enjoy the peace while it lasts. It sounds like the tale about how his car broke down could keep him going for ages!

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 13:33:42

He's not said anything since coming in.... shock

Oh dear, I'm one of those nattering colleagues sad

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 13:45:57

At least you know it's not you Annie as the colleague is a he.

FattyNinjaOwl Thu 05-Nov-15 13:47:53

Whatever you do, do not ask about the car!

TheExMotherInLaw Thu 05-Nov-15 14:02:37

he's read the thread!

Tapirs Thu 05-Nov-15 14:12:45

Yup. He's read the thread for sure. But that means he knows your username. What else have you posted about fucking annoying gasbags? grin

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 14:16:54

Ha. I did ask about the car blush He said yeah it's fine it's in the garage.

Nothing so far Tapirs grin

Time to pull a sickie?

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 14:22:22

Nah. He's busy working away. I am about to go on a web conference where I wont be able to speak or listen... WIN...WIN!

Qwertybynature Thu 05-Nov-15 14:23:16

Definitely read the thread! So what's worse, constant nattering or awkward silence? <tumbleweed>

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 15:36:31

Itrs more the selective time of when to chit chat. If I can clearly see he's in the middle of something, I dont waffle on. He doesnt seem to get that. Im being an arse, I'm sure lol

CalonDu Thu 05-Nov-15 16:12:05

Silence might suggest that he hasn't had a car breakdown at all. He's done something he can't even talk to you about, and the car is just a credible cover story...

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 16:13:52

CalonDu Good point.... I wonder what it is...? hmm

FattyNinjaOwl Thu 05-Nov-15 16:14:49

calon may be on to something here
Does he look the type to be a murderer? stupid question, they never do

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 16:18:33

Fatty I wouldnt say so, but YY to this - stupid question, they never do

FattyNinjaOwl Thu 05-Nov-15 16:21:35

Hmm, maybe he was getting rid of the body....
And then when they catch him, they will interview you and you can say "he looked so normal!" grin

cjt110 Thu 05-Nov-15 16:28:55

Maybe Fatty grin

CalonDu Thu 05-Nov-15 16:37:37

Maybe his wife has him on a TTC schedule, and she had an emergency ovulation window at 10.30am-1am. Did he look tired? Shell-shocked? Bits of tissue paper stuck on his trousers?
