    1/. Oh dear, never mind.
    2/. Worse things happen at sea - I always wonder if anyonesaid that as the Titanic was sinking.
    3/. Don't panic. - guarentees that everyone will.
    4/. It's your fault  - as if blaming someone solves the crisis

        I think it is one of those untrue facts hmm
        The sort that is commonly believed but if you dig a little you find out it is not true (I wish I had not done the research now!, I kinda liked that supposed fact)

    This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you got a moment, it's a twelve-story crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour portage, and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'. A large crisis requires a large plan. Get me two pencils and a pair of underpants.

    I have a few:

    That's not hiding. That's hoping. Completely different

    Look I've got a pile of ironing waiting and six kids that think McDonalds grow on trees. Can we hurry this along?

    Cut to the chase. How much?

    It could be worse. No - really. At least you've got a date of death coming up. The rest of us just have to keep hoping that today's not THAT day. God I hate surprises
