You know it’s time for new glasses when…

This morning I went to a work breakfast function with a guest speaker. The guest speaker was one of the members of my company’s group executive (ie about as senior as you can get around here).

Before she started, she was introduced by the MC with a bit of a bio – work history etc. He also mentioned a couple of her hobbies…

Like going for walks in exotic places.

Except he somehow read the “x” as an “r”.

The speaker took it in remarkably good humour and managed to make it into a running joke for the rest of the function, but the MC pretty much looked like he wanted to dig a hole and disappear into it!

I’d be off to the optometrist, personally!

That totally gets Quote of the Day! Maybe even quote of the year!
