  • Gareth Keenan: Yeah, here we go. I've told you before, you can't tell me what to do -- I'm team leader.
    Tim Canterbury: Well actually, Gareth, I'm senior sales rep, so yes, I can.
    Gareth Keenan: Uh, team leader beats senior sales rep.
    Tim Canterbury: No, it doesn't. My job title actually means something, Gareth, yeah? I got a pay rise, I'm on a new scale. Team leader doesn't mean anything, mate.
    Gareth Keenan: Excuse me, it means I'm leader of a team.
    Tim Canterbury: No it doesn't. It's a title someone's given you to get you to do something they don't want to do for free. Right? It's like making the div kid at school milk monitor. No one respects it.
    Gareth Keenan: Uh, I think they do.
    Tim Canterbury: No they don't, Gareth.
    Gareth Keenan: Uh, yes they do, because if people were rude to me, then I used to give them their milk last, so it was warm. Alright?
