What fun we have!

July 26, 2006

This is an email that Smooky in my office sent round our department yesterday afternoon. It made me chuckle so I thought I would share!

Hello all

As you all know, closing the blinds during the afternoon not only keeps the office cool, but stops Ted Rogers and other famous local folk being startled whilst driving past the offices.

Some of you may have witnessed New Girl’s attempt to close the blinds this afternoon which resulted in her needing assistance from three members of staff, with health and safety laws being seconds away from being breached and us all suffering serious injuries.

With this in mind, I have arranged a blind closing training session for tomorrow AM at 11:50. It will consists of three sections:

A) Removing potential obstacles
B) Drawing the blinds **
C) Closing the blinds

This should take no longer than 45 seconds to master but for any of you with any further questions after the demonstation, please see your local Wickes representative.

Kind regards,

    Very funny. It made me think it should be part of an episode of “the office”. The USA copied that show, but doesn’t do it justice.
