Northerners need translating

I've just had a conversation with someone in a different team at work over the phone.  She was asking for a specific capital modelling paper that our team had produced a few months back so that she could pass it on to head office over in Tokyo.  I'd never heard of it so I suggested she ask the director of our department who was bound to know.  In reply she said.

"Ah but he's in Egypt".

I thought she said EEEJIT (ah but he's an idiot), so I replied,

"...yeah, but he is our Chief Risk Officer..."

It was only after looking at his calendar that I saw that he is in fact on holiday.

Ha, ha.  I don't think she noticed.  Very funny though.  Bloody northerners!
