The Slice

Another misplaced "Love You"

Coeur d'Alene's John McTear remembers a corporate conference call years ago involving executives in Europe and the U.S.

The call went on forever and featured several contentious moments. The participants who weren't already exhausted eventually grew tired. Finally the president took a stab at summaring the tele-meeting and said good night to an executive taking part in the call named Rich.

Rich responded, "Good night (name of the president), love you," and hung up.

After a moment of uncomfortable silence, McTear spoke up. "Gee, he must have advance notice on this year's bonuses."
