    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    There isn't room - she just has a big pot of exclamation marks in case she runs out when sending emails.

    I'm sure they won't mind their workers therefore taking longer than their usual lunch break to nip off to the local Amazon locker/other locker/doddle/shop/post office to collect their parcels.

    They sent an email out 30 minutes later asking if anyone was going to a nearby office today, presumably as they have post to pass to that office.


    I nearly copy/pasted the email back at them.

    There was a breakfast meeting today. After it finished, an email came round

    "There are some leftover bacon rolls in the kitchen".

    This was followed a minute or so later by:-

    "Please remember you are not allowed to eat hot food at your desks"

    I don't know what the problem was. The rolls were lukewarm at best by the time we were allowed at them.

    A) Would you not ask the fire officer before sending the email...
    B) If the toaster is banned, why the fuck is it still there anyway.

    Sounds like it time to start photoshopping the missing toaster into various famous locations around the world, to document its travels.

    No matter how you slice it the toaster's gone forever. Unless you could butter-up whoever sent the email. Either way it's pretty crummy.

    etc, etc...

    More importantly, why is someone sending out emails containing the phrase "from myself" without their being killed as an example to others?
