Why is it that even 6 months after a bloke gets encouraged to leave by management and does (less paperwork then sacking apparently) i still on occasion have to repair relationships with clients after his blunders. Its even worse when its a long term client of mine who i havent seen in a while who is unhappy yet previously they were at the level with me where id go for a beer with them.

Why is it that IRAQ and IRAN are now pronounced EYE-RACK and EYE-RAN? Many decades ago when I was a child they were pronounced E-RAH-K and E-RAH-N.

Why is it that the top soccer league in Australia is called the A-league when it contains a team from New Zealand?
