I think this is not very flattering but terribly characteristic.

I asked Pat from IT for a new monitor yesterday morning and he brought me one. I also whined about my filthy keyboard and asked what I was supposed to do about it: take two hours out of my day to pop the key caps and scrub them in the sink? Leave a note for Housekeeping?

Pat said that he’d never heard of Housekeeping doing it, but he could get me a new keyboard. Somewhat miffed, I wanted to know if I was the only person in the organisation who managed to make her keyboard so filthy?

No, said Pat. Certainly not. But I was the only one in the organisation who wanted someone else to clean it for her.


He brought me a new keyboard.
