Funny Friday! Mock of the FM Week…

In the spirit of the game played on BBC’s Mock the Week where they have a round called “Things you’re unlikely to hear…”, we thought we’d give it a go: ‘Unlikely things to hear when you work in FM.’

To get us started here’s a few suggestions:

“Thank you so much for everything you do.”

“The temperature is just perfect in the office today.”

“I’m happy to empty my own bin.”

“Of course I know how to use the dishwasher.”

“Please, take the rest of the day off.”

“How much time do you need? Yes, that’s absolutely fine.”

“I think we need to increase your budget.”


Want to add your own? Just leave a comment below, or tweet it using the hashtag #mockfmweek – we’ll add them all to the list. Go on, give it a go, you know you have one…

Here’s the comments we’ve seen on Twitter so far… (thanks for contributing everyone)
