I have a co-worker that has a desk right next to mine. We share a phone. We have very different responsibilities. His subordinates are always walking up to our area and not seeing Ted, they ask me "Where's Ted?"

I try to be cool about it but I am getting increasingly sarcastic in my response. I have no idea what Ted is doing or where he is. My usual response is to slowly (and pointedly) look around and say "I don't see him." Some of the people that have been around a while have caught on but there is so much churn that there are always new people that think my job is to keep track of where "Ted" is. Sadly a lot of higher ups have the same notion and I have to act like I normally keep track of him but am not sure at the moment.

Not a big deal but after the 10,000th time it gets old.
