Smiley's People - John le Carré

 

Trying to get started on this spy novel over my coffee break this morning.  Unfortunately, in our new building the coffee room doubles as a meeting room.  So, I'm at one end, attempting to read.  At the other end is a meeting of four people--two of them speak English as a second language, one has a speech impediment, and the fourth is (let me be blunt) dumb as a sack of hammers.  They are discussing a rather complex fix that needs to be done in our new computer system and trying to make themselves understood to each other.

 

I cut coffee short and I am so glad that I'm going to start vacation at 3:30 pm this afternoon!  I apparently really need the break.  I'm cranky.
