Office humor

Moments ago, one of the office assistants came up to me in order to schedule a meeting with me next week. We went through the usual dance, and I finally told her any time on May 1, 2, or 3 was fine.

A few minutes later I received an email that said:

How about May 1 at 9 am?

I could simply not resist replying with:

“May-day, may-day, I’ve got a meeting at 9 o’clock, I repeat, I’ve got a meeting at 9 o’clock!”

Fortunately, she thought it was as funny as I did.
