(I’m making small-talk with another businessman at a bus stop in front of a petroleum engineering building.)

Man: “I used to work across the street at [Multinational Oil Company]. We had an odd policy of sending documents to the petroleum engineers.”

Me: “Odd? How so?”

Man: “We would FedEx important documents from that side of the street to theirs.”

Me: “Seriously? The documents would travel all the way to Memphis and back again just to cross the street?”

Man: “Yes. FedEx eventually figured it out and never put the stuff on a plane but just took it across the street.”
