    a_chap When the world came apart, where were you?

    I like the idea that you should somehow be aware of a forthcoming emergency so that you can request phone is near you.

    And great time management by the CEO - definitely s/he has nothing more important to do than act as phone monitor.

    Also the tone of the laughter is wrong(?!?) - maybe they should run a course for that.

    Would love to know which company sent that e-mail.

    We recently got a couple of new coffee machines. They're Cookworks jobbies that cost about £15 each. But then I suppose the multinational, industry leading co I work for didn't get where it is today by buying fancy coffee machines...

    The office I'm in also has an appallingly high staff turnover... I wonder why...

    How long until they realise they are spending more time and money on recruitment since said person arrived than they are their wage? Or are they a don't give a shit about employees type organization?

    The bit about not laughing too much is absolutely spectacular. Bet whoever wrote that is a hoot at parties. :D

    This reminds me of somewhere both my OH and I worked, at different times.

    When I worked there it was bad enough, but when OH worked there a few years later they were not allowed to talk in groups about non-work things and (I really kid you not) had to log toilet breaks!

    He soon left and yes, surprisingly enough, staff turnover there was very high.

    The tone of the laughter being too high just implies that everyone should now use a deep, booming, Brian Blessed laugh.

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    Fuck me, any decent supervisors / managers* would love it if there is laughter in the work place as it’s a good indicator of morale.

    * Ok, maybe not the head of a group of pall bearers..

    If Brian Blessed is unacceptable to them you need to go full Frank Bruno on them.

    I feel a scolding afoot...

    Someone just sent out a mass email to nearly 1000 colleagues across the globe asking them to subscribe to their youtube channel :facepalm:. They said if they get 500 subscribers they will donate £100 to charity...

    I think they may soon find themselves with more time on their hands to promote their youtube channel ...
