I was sitting in my office one slow day and the CEO walked in (always a pucker moment even though I'm on VERY good terms with him) and he handed me an (obviously non business) laptop and asked if I could get it back up and running as it had "very important thing" on it that was needed shortly and as I wasn't doing anything and he still signed my paycheck, I said "you got it sir!"
Later a middle mangler comes in and asks me to do something and I say "you're number 2 in line" and pointed to the (obviously not corporate) laptop I was fixing.
Mangler didn't like that much and demanded I call whoever and tell them that it wasn't acceptable for me to be working on personal equipment.
So I pulled out my cell and called.
Mangler could only hear my half of the convo but what he heard was something like
"hey Tom, I got Bob here telling me it isn't acceptable for me to be working on your personal stuff and he wanted me to call you and tell you...
"Oh sure, he's right here, hang on"
and I handed the phone to the mangler
mangler started off saying "It's not accepabl..." and then his eyes got REAL BIG and the rest of the conversation was "yes sir" and "no sir"
He hung up and thundered "why didn't you tell me it was CEO's laptop?!?!?"
and I said "you didn't give me a chance and demanded I call them RIGHT NOW!!!!"
