James just sent the following mail internally:
I need some volunteers to go with me to Hamleys.
Successful applicants will have knowledge of Lego.
It has been suggested that he's bluffing and this is acutally a loyalty test - dedicated employees will stay firmly at their desks.
On the other hand if he's for real he's missed out two other requirements - linear calculus (the branch of maths dedicated to minimising the cost of Lego sets you need to buy to get the particular parts you need) and the ability to carry stuff (given that one possibility is buying 20 rack and pinion steering sets at £2.99 each to get sufficient rack pieces).
Remember - the less you spend on on Lego, the more money there is left to buy chocolate.
