Sounds like a movie, doesn’t it?

Anyway, it gets better:

Hans: “I really can’t rip myself apart and do all this at the same time! Fuck me in the knee! Secretgeek – I will forward you some email. Do you want to come have a coffee with us?”

Me: “No, I don’t have time.”

Hans leaves and takes Mark with him, who is supposed to work on that urgent project.

I check Hans’ email. It’s a customer ordering something trivial, workload about 5-10 minutes, max.

I reply to Hans via email: “Maybe instead of having coffee you should do this yourself.”

Hans returns 15 minutes later, and I tell him what I think of this. And, surprisingly, I don’t get any backtalk from him either. I guess even Hans knows that this was really out of line.
