I remember several years ago...
we were doing yet another company merger IT rollout and my boss told me and my mate that we were to go up to Cheadle for 4 days to help with the rollout there.
"But Boss, that's not one of our branches! It's a collections branch not a claims branch!"
He wouldn't discuss the matter, we had to go. So we did, after hiring the highest class of hire car and the best hotel in the area that we could. We usually did things on the cheap but this was so farcical we thought "what the hell!" Drove up from Norwich, booked in and went round to the branch to show our faces and get the expected response.
"What are you pair doing here? This isn't one of your branches! Piss off!" said the guy managing this office.
"We know! Thank you we will!"
After that we walked straight out and spent three days from 11am till 11PM in the pub next door, drinking and eating. Was a nice little break really.
