Caller: How’s it going with A, B and C?
Me: It’s good. More A, B and D now. How about you and delivery of X,Y and Z?
Caller: I want to talk about something beyond the alphabet here. The 27th letter if you like – let’s call it Omega. I think it would be a brilliant idea for us to deliver Omega.
Me: Sounds fantastic. And does Omega come attached with any finance to make it happen?
Caller: The finance is aspirational at this point.
Me: I see. Well how about the budget for the X, Y and Z, how’s that cooking?
Caller: I’m on a train, going through a tunnel! [Line goes dead]
