A New String Theory

| Working | April 24, 2014

(The team leader for my department is notorious for being a bit of a smug, insufferable know-it-all. One of the admins asks a question…)

Team Lead: “That’s a ‘how long is a piece of string?’ question. That means no one really knows the answer to it.”

Me: “Actually, I have an answer for that one.”

Team Lead: “Dazzle me. How long is a piece of string?”

Me: “Twice the distance from the centre to either end.”

Team Lead: *turns to coworker* “Ask her. She knows everything.”
