Actual email from our IT guy:

Apologies for the server outage; I have now taken a hammer to it and it is working again

Actual conversation between my PM and me:

Me: I can’t even insert tags in my segments. I get the buffering circle.
PM: I wish that buffering circle would buffer something else.

When I’m on a confidential project and my junior colleague asks me about it

"Can’t talk, low battery. Remember, I’m in Morocco? I’m literally lost in the desert. I climbed up a dune to see if I can get phone coverage or spot our camp from here and.." "I have just a small project for you." "Look, I really have to.." "It’s just 40 words. Can you waive your minimum charge?"

"I’m sorry I can’t talk now. I’m on a guided tour through a nuclear power plant and I can’t believe I have phone coverage here" "I know you’re not working today, but it’s just 300 words."

'Could you fit in this small job?' Turns out it's a fixing job.
