A vignette from my day
(The telephone rings. Caller ID indicates it is my colleague C)
C: How long have you been here?
Me: Shit! I forgot to respond to your email. Sorry about that.
C: Wha...? Uh, this is C.
Me: Yeah, I know.
Me: Oh! You mean how long have I worked here?
C: Yeah...you know, for that thing I'm writing for you?
Me: Ha ha! I thought you were pissed because I've been here all day and never answered your email!
C: What email?
Me: Nothing. Nevermind.
