When TS thinks of the huge volume of work constantly being thrown its way, we’re often reminded of the Red Weed from War of the Worlds, and that very creepy tune from the Jeff Wayne musical version. It just seems to gradually take over everything.
We thought this may have just been an oddity of TS’s, so we were a little relieved to read about a PricewaterhouseCoopers employee who has a similarly creepy imagination. An article in the Financial Times, quoted senior auditor Peter Quest as calling his emails ‘triffids’. The reason? ‘You can spend all day killing them, then you turn your back for a second and those red things, those triffids, have taken over your screen again.’
TS knows exactly how you feel Peter. We’re just wondering whether you get the recurring dreams that wake you up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night as well.
