I was really truly touched.
It's not often people in the corporate world take time to say things like that and seem to really mean it. It gave me a warm happy glow and re-newed my hope in the world.
Erm, well today his boss took him aside and informed him that there appeared to be some kind of strange, rather mis-informed rumour going round the company and certain people were under the belief that......
I was about to die.
Excuse my language but WHAT. THE. F'CK.
So the woman that beckoned him into the office and said the nice things was actually talking about my imminent demise.
There now (apparently) needs to be some 'very delicate handling' of the situation the rumour is unpicked and people are gently corrected.
My life often takes a rather surreal turn (as you may well have noticed) but NEVER before has anything this, erm, 'odd' occured.
I'm not quite sure what to make of this but one thing is for certain, I won't be popping into the office for lunch next week.....
