One of our sales managers - who I’m pretty sure makes close to double my salary - just came to ask me (for the millionth time) how to total a column in Excel. That’s right find the sum of one column. Not a complicated formula (which I’m also excellent at by the way). Sum. I need to find a new job.

Me: That's close, Buddy.
James: Maybe Annie can sing the birthday song to me.
