'Don't Touch The Interns, Philip'?

'Don't Touch The Interns, Philip'?

Hi there, a very annoyed Philip Cheeter here.

I'm sure that, like me, you have read my superb biography many times.

But just in case you have forgotten one or two of the facts from it, let me remind you. One of the ground rules in the office, ever since a misunderstanding a couple of years ago, is apparently 'don't touch the interns, Philip'. This is unfairly specific, I feel. But I was fine with it, if it meant keeping my job – until yesterday.

There's a new intern in the office. English guy. He struts in on his first day, kissing all the gals on the cheek, smiling like he owns the place, and generally getting in my way. Worst of all, my beloved Susie seems intent on him being her new protegé. If this guy thinks he can move in on my territory, if he thinks he can ruin my flirting monopoly in the Delavigne headquarters, then he is sadly mistaken. And I will make damn sure that he doesn't sell a single perfume.

The question I want to ask is: if Philip can't touch the interns, how come the interns can touch anyone they like? In any case, in the words of MC Hammer, he can't touch this. He won't last long.

Do you ever wish you could act with a bit more freedom at work? Or maybe you're tired of being touched by your colleagues. Either way, tell me about it in a comment!

I fall into the 'tired of being touched by your colleagues' category. One colleague in particular, in fact. You know who you are.

I can't stand interns who get carried away too quickly. I'd get rid of him any way you can.

Well, it all depends. Let's suppose you are a number cruncher, having spent your whole youth in your room, proofing mathematical hunches, and in your forties still living with your mother. If some sympathetic colleagues at work hadn't touched you once in a while and if the conscientious security staff at the airport hadn't frisked you on suspicion – you wouldn't have had any sexual life at all. You see – an extroverted colleague with a penchant for body contact is not necessarily annoying.
