I don’t suppose you know if there are any statistics on heart attacks caused by foreign country codes that occure on the telephone display? 😉
Thanks for your template! It definitely decreases the amount of emergency cases at work. 😉 helpful as always, great.
Well actually I don’t know if there are any – worth looking into! I’ll get on to it and the report will be on your desk on Monday at 6.30 am sharp. If not you can call me with the Chinese code.
