Another boss bites the dust - err, I mean lime and carpet!
Hooray for another episode. I get twitchy when the Friday's episode doesn't come through!
"What's this?" the Boss demands, tossing a tattered faux leather-covered book at me. "This?" I say. "It looks like someone's diary." "Your assistant's - but what's inside it?" "I don't know. I'm not in the habit of reading personal stuff," I respond, choking down a chuckle. "I suggest you do!" he snaps. "Why, what am I …
The next Fred West, a corporate spy!
Incidentally, is the BOFH trying to get rid of the Boss, or the PFY? Putting one onto the other is a surefire way to lose one of them, chances being the Boss, but he seemed to be dropping lots of hints that the PFY is a sociopathic mass murderer.
hmmm... the beginnings of a whole new storyline? BOFH vs PFY? Been watching much UFC lately Simon? ;)
Also, this says be the first to comment, but seeing as this has been up for just over an hour, I can't see me being first. However, if by remote chance I am... WOO! First to Comment! Took it's cherry! :)
Be a pal, bring my car around back, open the boot, set the tyre iron out, and have a look in for the BB's I spilled there yesterday -- I'm going to need a lot. By the way, you may want to remind the receptionist you're going to be out for a long lunch, so not to expect you in for quite some time.
a) The BOFH stories are fiction - not reality!
b) If the stories were a reflection of reality, you would undoubtedly have discovered what the PFY *really* gets up to at night by now...
c) The stories are set in the UK - specifically somewhere in London.
d) Why haven't you investigated that loose stair rail I mentioned several weeks back?
e) Accusing "Why" of misspelling is a bit rich, given that (i) you can't spell, and (ii) you haven't discovered your caps lock key yet... "Do as I say, not as I do" .... but then again, that pretty much sums up the average boss...
No one's even commented about the subtlety that the PFY is out with the boss's wife. Which is why he's going to get rid of him. Now go back & re-read the story *stern look*
Also, the BOFH & PFY are both well aware of encryption techniques, so why the bloody hell would the PFY keep a paper diary lying about?
Also: "No one's even commented about the subtlety that the PFY is out with the boss's wife."
He's not. 'It's a joke - the page is blank!'
And: "...why the bloody hell would the PFY keep a paper diary lying about?"
He didn't -- the Bastard did, having made it up specially for the purpose. Seriously, go back and read it again, you can't have been paying attention the first time.

Normally that is a reserved occupation/occasional ocupational hazard and/or pleasure for BOFH Execution/Executive Privilege.
But he's such a *cute* troll, we ought to make sure he's kept happy and safe and warm for a long time to come. (But it's someone else's turn to clean up that disgusting drool!)
Besides, if we didn't have JIM THE BOSS around to amuse us, we'd probably have to ask (very nicely, of course!) the BOFH to send the boss or a beancounter off to the woods to inspect the delightful garden outbuildings - especially the Dread Gazebo...
Wow, you can't slip anything past the current boss. This is one case that you don't want to go digging into or you'll end up digging your own grave, literally.
Can I have a look at his list? Just for a few ideas of my own. Purely for research mind you. I'm just really interested in forensics you know.
"Boss's missus, pub, 8:30.”
"Off at lunch with the new woman from the pub."
even though the page in the 'diary' was blank, i think these two lines are the bofh dropping a subtle hint at the PFY's activities, obviously too subtle for the boss with his 'detective' skills
and Smiley face because JTB gave me an extra laugh
