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.
