Geography of vocabulary….

As I reach outside the manager’s office, three of my coworkers  appear and stand behind me. Amongst them was the Controller of the company.  In a way of making some small  talk,  I ask if  all of us  were in “queue” to see the manager.
Everyone looks blankly at me as if I am speaking some kind of gibberish language.
The controller in particular tells me every one was in  the “line” to see the manager, yes!

I go in since I was the first one to be outside the door.  The office manager looks up at me questioningly. I was there to let her know that the ‘franking machine’ was blinking ‘low fund’ .

She asks me, ‘ what is?’

I reply, ‘the stamp machine?’

She laughs, ‘ oh that!’

And the journey continues………..
