Workplace Expectations

So, this morning at my job, we had a brief workshop on pension transfers (specifically, Actuarial Liability Transfers within differing pension plans). Our manager thanked the teammate making the presentation and added, "Honestly, I expected this to be pretty boring," to which the presenter replied playfully, "Pensions, boring? Never!"

A colleague sitting next to me chimed in with, "Remember, the life of a Pensions Clerk is always intense!"

I was gobsmacked.

I turned to him and said, "Of all the places I could have encountered a Repo Man reference today, I certainly wasn't expecting one here. You've really made my day!"

Now I can't get the Iggy Pop theme song out of my head. Ah well, there's worse fates.
