Overheard at the bus-stop, one academic to another:
"So I told the bus driver that I was just going to nip off the bus to buy a paper, I'd only be 30 seconds and would he mind waiting and watching my briefcase. And when I got back the bus was gone and I had to wait 40 minutes for another! So I was ever so naughty when I got into work and rang the bus garage to say that my heart pills were in my briefcase and I needed them to get it back to me immediately."
"That was rather naughty."
"But my heart pills were in my briefcase."
