The Managers

The Managers are always to be found in twos or threes, lumbering greyly.


If you pass the Managers in a corridor it’s a good idea to say hello. They will probably return your greeting, as best they can.


The Managers conduct meetings. They sit at the head of the table, waving their arms ponderously. Agreeable noises are music to their ears.


The Managers believe in the Company. In devising a Five Year Plan to facilitate its great destiny, they verge on enthusiasm.


The Managers are sometimes required to attend Company functions. They arrange themselves in a circle, like standing stones, and mutter. Their laughter is an uncertain rumble.


At night the Managers store themselves in a small cupboard.
