Two of my colleagues – an editor and a designer- have been ‘discussing procedures’ with barely disguised hostility for over 40 minutes now, barely 10 feet away from me.
Twice I have fled the room to escape being dragged into the conversation and I am currently sitting here with my headphones on, hoping Thom Yorke will drown them out.
The worst of it is that I can see both of their points of view. They have very different working styles and personalities – so different that they are just never going to work well together – and both want my involvement on their side to back them up.
All I want is for them to both shut up and get on with it. Its only a f***king book, for goodness sake.
