Chirpy Award of the Week goes to Pauline Draper, director of media evaluation and analysis firm CMS.

Chirpy Award of the Week goes to Pauline Draper, director of media

evaluation and analysis firm CMS.



Arriving at work on Monday, she discovered that a fire in an adjacent

office had left her with smashed windows, black gunge over everything,

an overheated fax machine, and the pungent aroma of burnt rubber hanging

in the air. Worse still, she now has the prospect of relocating while

refurbishment takes place.



Enough to make anyone a trifle miffed. But not Draper who informs me:

’We’re going to get a spanking new office. We didn’t lose any client

data and it was business as usual by the following day. It could have

been so much worse.’



What a trooper.
