Not on booze...

Many, many moons ago I was enjoying a sunny afternoon in the swimming pool. My excuse: I was still at university at that time, so this is obviously no representation of my work ethics. Until the phone rang - a colleague ran into some sort of problem. That was deep in the pre-smart phone era and with no computer, let alone internet connection, nor any book/manual at hand. Mind you, I was actually in the water. Having only a cordless phone in my hand and no clue at all, I simply started to ask questions, trying to understand the very abstract problem. That is, until I until my colleague found the solution.

To these days I still haven't got the slightest idea what the actual problem was. But my colleague had been deeply grateful for my invaluable help. And I've made a career out of it and became auditor.
