    I love the cop out of if you're already doing this well done.

    Be nice to get a email for doing a good job without it having to be put on the end of a bitching one.

    Oh well, there's Christmas I suppose for the standard 'thanks for all your hard work this year'

    Puddy_Tat meh

    the immediate question is why your colleagues are trying to rrad while they are at an angle on the bottom shelf...

    Double points for use of 'heaven forfend' in an email.

    I thought I worked in a pedantic library, clearly that's the pinnacle of pedantry to which all libraries should aspire.

    It's not pedantry. All perfectly reasonable requests.

    There's only 7 people in the office, fuck knows why whoever keeps writing these notes can't just say something... 20180410_101127.jpg

    Schmetterling I saw something nasty in the woodshed!

    Print your post, in capitals, and stick the print on top of that note. Then report back.

    8115 sitting down is bad for you

    If it was me, I would have laminated it :)
     
  13. Good Afternoon All,

    This is an email from the building team please remember to keep the access card all the time with you.

    Starting today we shall be enforcing a new policy with regards to forgotten access cards as this is becoming an increasingly common issue.

    If you forget your access cards you will have to contact your colleagues to collect you from reception and take you to the correct floor. Ground floor reception will no longer allow you access.

    Access control is in place in the building for your safety and security.

    Best Regards,



    They don't charge for lost cards, so if you forget your card you can just say you lost it and they give you a new one :)

    I think everyone in the office should ' forget their cards on the same day to see how the business will cope.... '

    ... I might also mention that the above note refers to the tea and coffee jars, which of the 7 people in the office, only three of us ever use.

    Well, I don't. I find the idea that the freshness of the contents of three jars which are emptied and replenished at least once a week could be compromised by leaving the lids open laughable tbh.

    Needs a passive-aggressive spelling correction too, it's 'receptacles' ffs. I recommend a big felty red pen.

    I was only pretending to think you did. That's not exactly the scintillating repartee I thought might ensue if I did so.

    never mind, eh. Consider yourself lucky to get ersatz repartee.

    So basically that note is aimed directly at you :D

    Oh, definitely. The passive-aggressive office note is always aimed at an individual.

    I guess that chilled out approachable office persona I imagine I project must be some distance from the truth. :hmm:

    I heard a sad thing today. My male colleague told me that there is a sign in the gents' loos at work that says 'If you do a number 2, please clean up after yourself'. It was clearly put there by the cleaner who has made it clear that she is exasperated at having to deal with the liberally applied smears of shit in the gents.

    Someone has written just do your fucking job.

    :(
