A colleague who wants to lock in a meeting time with you has no previous experience as a pub landlord, prison warden, safe manufacturer or any other occupation that might explain the use of the term, it has been confirmed.
Peter Jones, made the request for 15 minutes of your time in the corridor, for a catch up. Yet your vague response of ‘I’m free later on Tuesday and have a bit of space Thursday’, has quickly escalated on his part into a tactical battle for midweek meeting space, and the unnecessary use of imagery which suggest that you are meeting to confirm and activate nuclear weapon codes and passwords.
Having enquired with colleagues you haven’t been able to find any evidence that he was a locksmith, although many did note vague aspirations to lock in all of him into a suitable storage cupboard on the fourth floor of your office block.
After the meeting with you has been locked in for 330 on Wednesday, Jones has also confirmed that as an agenda, ‘everything is in play’, despite having no experience as an American football referee or sports betting odds-setter.
