I know that's not funny, but it is.
The last few responses reminded me of two extremely cool work friends from way back, Jenny & Malclom.
I used to work with Jenny and one day she introduced me to one of the Reps/Suppliers called Malcolm. Nice guy, he had his own partnership in a retail office supply store. He also had a great sense of humour and was very left wing. Malcolm was 40+ when I met him. Both had had divorces and each had a teenage child. Malcolm hated elitism of any kind, so every tme anyone asked what he 'did' for a living he'd deliberately say he was a delivery boy delivering office supplies. He would love to see the reactions from people, which ranged from "oh sure", to "at your age?" [speech bubble: what a loser] etc. etc. Jenny and Malcolm got married about 2 years after they met and as far as I know are still happily together.
