Funny work moment: today the dept is doing phone interviews for assistant professor position. I'm phoning in because I live so far away.

Dept. chair calls me earlier than expected, and says Janet is going to be on the call. I'm thinking he means the VP, and I'm thinking to myself why on earth is she going to be in on the preliminary phone interviews?! My anxiety starts to rise even more.

He meant his wife, who is also named Janet, who is a lovely person. I need to go out and visit them again.
