le cadeau idéal….
Do you know a chatter? The person who just talks, and talks, and talks. A certain person we work with is one of these. Whilst on the phone to him I can write emails, put through sales, catalogue posters…. just slip in a little uh-huh or yep every now and then and your fine. It’s always harmless, but never interesting. Just blah, blah, blah. Or, as the French would say “et patati et patata”. What a wonderful saying. According to the French dictionary, it can be used in place of ‘etcetera, etcetera’, ‘and so on and so forth’ or ‘yada, yada, yada’. Brilliant. So the next time you have someone chatting away, just drop a little “et patati et patata” and they’ll probably stop mid-scentence. Or you could give them one of these Badiot mineral water posters…. eventually they’ll work it out!
