I was in "Scribbler", a greetings card shop, choosing, unsurprisingly, a greetings card. There was a woman nearby, dressed in a Soho approximation of a 'power suit'. Luckily she was also speaking loudly into her mobile so we could all hear her deliberations:

LOUD WOMAN: He's not really a cheeky person is he? I won't get him anything too cheeky... there's something here with a football team on it but... no I don't think so... well, he's not leaving to join a football team is he? He doesn't like football... well he doesn't look as though he likes football... those glasses... I'll just get him one that says 'sorry you're leaving' and we can all sign that. Yes?... Hello?
