Berry amusing

Overheard at work recently:

Somewhat irate caller to my boss : Why haven’t you responded to my email and phone calls?
Boss, just as irate : I’ve left only about three bloody messages on your answerphone over the last couple of days.
Caller (a bit deflated) : Oh. Really? Odd, I didn’t get them.
Boss (triumphantly) : Well, obviously your bloody strawberry is no bloody good then, is it?

*sound of muffled giggles from my corner*

LOL! My boss calls it her crackberry, since she is so addicted to it.

Hey, thanks for your comments on my blog. I would like to blogroll you, if that's okay.

Merino: :D He said "strawberry" when he meant a BlackBerry - you know, the super-smartphone which allows you to text, email, fax, surf the Net, etc? :)

About 4-5 years ago I would invariably call it blue berry :D
