Primo: Ted wrote today that he, Jack, and I need to have a conference call.
Me: About what?
Primo: I don't know.
Me: But you're on vacation.
Primo: I know. Ted wants to run things.
Me: OK. But just because he wants a call does not mean you have to take it.
Primo: He can email me a list of things he wants to talk about.
Me: And then you can talk about them during the funeral weekend.
Primo: Ted says that weekend should be reserved for mourning.
Me: Ted is a jerk.
