Could Do Better

A long time ago, my husband worked with a woman who was, to be polite, a little bit lazy. The draft documents she produced were usually light on detail, structure and fact. When these defects were pointed out to her and she was asked to go away and improve things, she would, invariably, toss her head and say, 'The trouble with you is that you always want a Rolls Royce product.'

Since the incident yesterday involving Qantas and a Rolls Royce engine, the phrase, which has passed into regular usage in our household, has taken on a very different meaning. Even Ms Indolence might manage a Rolls Royce product now.
