An all too common scene in this part of the world:
A graphic designer from our Kuwait office dropped by our Cairo office for a visit. He's an Egyptian living in Kuwait and his name is Mohamed. He was here on a family holiday. He wanted to see Captain M and check out his new "manager" digs.
Captain M took Mohamed around the office to introduce him to the sales staff, the designers, and the translation staff.
We have four translators, also called editors. Three are men, while one is a woman named Heba.
Captain M introduced Mohamed to the translators. My office is about five feet away, so I overheard this, causing no end to my giggles.
"Mohamed," said Captain M. "Meet Mohamed, Mohamed, Mohamed, and Heba."
