When she is traveling, her daughter will call the office to ask for permission to play Nintendo. The receptionist knows the routine and asks: "Have you finished your homework? Have you had your snack? OK, you can play Nintendo for 1/2 an hour". She then leaves a voice message "I gave Tara permission to play Nintendo". Unheard of in most companies.
