Bullshit Time

Dodge that crap
  [vote for,

You know that scene from The Matrix, when Keanu Reeves dodges the enemy fire in slo-mo? The effect is known as Bullet Time.

I propose bullshit time. The ability to disseminate the real from the absurd when in a conversation with your line manager.

Slow time down and side step wonderous phrases like: "I know you know what I know, I just want to be sure that they know before we know..."

I stand up and, suit flapping in the wind, jump around, over, under and through the oderous material as it whizzes past my large ears.

"Dodge this", my co-worker is heard to say, as a large custard flan is aimed and delivered with startling precision.

       :-) I think most of us operate in bullshit time. The seemingly non-ending attempts by managers to engage your enthusiasm when you just want to do your job, collect your money and fuck off home, do become wearisome. It's knowing when to hold fire and when to give 'em both barrels that's so difficult.

       I have an in-built bullshit meter - comes in handy with my cow-shirker.
