Ahem. Thanks, NLUK, for the compliment. But, to be clear, this would not be the first, second, or fiftieth time for me, if I had.

But I didn't, not this time. Observe.

You know as well as I do that CO would have been pulled up before I ever saw his comment if he'd said 'my manager', but he didn't. I've had conversations with the 'Operations Manager', the 'Products Manager', and the 'HR Manager' (they were asking permission to poach one of my employees) at one of my clients this week. I'm certainly not going to call them Mr Client Representative.

(how'd I do, do you think I saved this one? )
