    Default Mexican swine flutes

    Two of my team members are now at home nursing relatives with ‘Mexican Flutes’. Clientco says they can’t come to the office until a doctor has seen said relatives, so as to prevent this disease spreading.

    WTF? What makes Mexican flutes so bloody different to Irish flutes or pan pipes? Is this the fault of James Galway’s Mexican cousins?

    if you see enough late night TV-shop "infomercials" for a diverse selection of great music you wll be able to spot the difference.

    Mexican Swine Flutes has nothing to do with James : it is an old Dutch phrase for permies pulling a sickie during a heatwave .

    I'd be on something stronger if I worked for one of those consultancy firms.

    Are they Mexican Nose Flutes? If so they will have been told it' snot safe for them to go in and although they're being totally nasal about it, but who nose what could happen?

    There are record traffic jams on the way to the beaches in southern and northwest Holland today; I wonder if my sick permies are sitting in them?

    Disgusting - and with a recession on as well.

    Well I hope they all got sunburnt.

    Wouldnt catch me on a Dutch beach enjoying myself when you could be busy file clerking in a stuffy office near Basingstoke.

    I liked Scheveningen when I was working over there.

    Cocktails after work, sea air - lovely.
