Jim, you never guess what? I ‘d just finished a job installing a router and it was second visit having got another one and the husband normally used to pick phone every time and he wasn’t around the house both times. So on after she’d settled up and was on the way out I casually asked “How’s your husband?”.
to which she said “he died last week”
then there was a pause
“it’s been bad time for the Internet to go down”
Jim: “Yes it’s bugger to sort inheritance without the Net”
Mark: shit I think I better send a sympathy card
Jim: “I’m sure you can claim that under business expenses”
