The Manager:
"Hey Bob did you get the invite to the CIAG meeting – the time changed. They might need you, we are going to talk about product and your part XXXX might be mentioned so you really might want to be there, or I can come get you if they mention XXXX"
- I glance at my handy dandy Microsoft schedule – the daily 8:45 meeting (Mon-Thurs) done.
- the 9:15 – daily everyday huddle – sharing meeting – done.
Two projects due by COB today. One draft due today. Two more future meetings at 2 PM and 3:15 PM
Bob:
"Yeah sure, thanks for the invite, I'll be there, Aloha."
5 minutes later – Managers new e-mail to Bob:
"What's with the Aloha, you aren't going maverick on me or leaving or something are you?"
"No I'm good, Aloha"

You said "Aloha" not Allah Ackbar!" for crying outside! Be thankful you didn't say "Viya Con Dios!"
