Yesterday we had a delivery and the boss was chuntering (mumbling) something. I asked what they were chuntering about he said, ‘I’m counting up the number of cages that’s come off so far’. I said, well, that’s two scissor lifts dropped and each lift takes nine cages, minus the two empty cages (used to fill the void between retaining bars), that’s 16 cages. He looked at me incredulously and said, ‘so your telling me there is only one more cage to come off!?’. I asked how many it said on the manifest, he said 17. So I replied, yes, one more cage to come off (the rest being dollies, BDUs and pallets).

And the idiot shook his head like I was the idiot.
