      En gang imellem forekom det hende, at det mest konstruktive, det mest effektive, det mest ærlige, ville være at skide højt og flot på den professionalisme, tage jahatten af, krølle den sammen og hoppe på den og så ellers fortælle de involverede jappehoveder, at de for hendes skyld kunne gå hjem og tage gas.
      Every once in a while, it seemed to her that the most constructive, the most efficient, the most honest, would be to refrain from giving a flying fuck about that professionalism, to take off the yes-hat, crumple it, jump on it, and inform the yakkers that she would not mind if they all went home and took gas.
