overheard at the coffee shop downstairs:

There's a lass at my work - total barrel of laughs :arrow:

Anyway - I had a call from my boss wanting to see if I could get hold of any relevant company training resources (as the local ethics adviser) around appropriate workplace dialog. This all stems from the following
1) If someone forgets their office pass they get issued a temporary one. The Boss started referring to these as 'Twat Badges' - this caused a complaint to be lodged by this lass
2) During a Skype office meeting I made mention I'd have to leave early that day to see a doctor about my busted knee. Another workmate asked if my wife had been beating me up and I said that I deserved it for being too lippy - this caused a complaint to be lodged by this lass
3) After being evacuated from our office we were told it was due to cracks in all the floors of the building. Someone said that would just mean in a worst case scenario we wouldn't need to take the lift to the ground floor - this caused a complaint to be lodged by this lass as it was insensitive to the people of Christchurch after their big earthquake years ago
4) My team leader made a comment about some company policies being schizophrenic - this caused a complaint to be lodged by this lass

So now we need to have a meeting to discuss appropriate workplace language. Good times.

At some point a person complained that calling our less formal meetings a “pow wow” was insensitive to someone. I wonder if it was this same lass. Did she ever work in Colorado?!

Well she’s gone from our office and on to you, and I apologize for that. I’m glad she’s moved on, but another cropped up in her place.

At least she did a thorough handover.

andy: umm yea i saw that, you need it now? is it approved, does steve (my boss)know?

jerry's head : no he has no clue i ordered 25K of equipment, i was hoping to sneak it by everyone so they wouldnt know that im selling them on craigslist for a tiny profit. if you could release it and forget it that would be fantastic

what really happened: Resting sarcastic face, um yea, its 25K worth of equipment that steve asked me to order

upgraded a user from a laptop to a surface
all he had was a laptop, no monitor, mouse or keyboard

gave him keyboard and mouse and found a monitor and gave it to him

2 hours later HR tells me someone stole their monitor. i explain i saw it in the side office and gave it to so and so

that is ours we paid for it it needs to be put back

<bs they paid for it the company did> sure give me on minute
i turn around and fetch another monitor

tell guy i gave monitor to i have to swap it out and the fbombs fly telling me its fucking bullshit and im not doing this..

me: not up for debate and i am swapping it out

him: fbombs me and what not

me:again reply, not my concern

him: im going to go talk to them its bullshit

he comes back

Him: ill talk to so and so and so and so and you will order me a larger montior, this is effin bullshit

me: the monitor i swapped out is literally 1 inch smaller in diameter <holds monitors on top of each other to show it>

him: they use company cards and now this fuck this....

3 hours later get an email from the head of HR

Sent: Friday, June 15, 2018 1:09 PM

Subject: HR Office

Team:

It was brought to my attention that a monitor was removed from our HR Office located in the Marketing Wing. Please do not remove any items from this office which has been allocated to my team and indicated by the HR Office sign located on the wall. If you need to temporarily borrow something in the future, please ask.

Thank you.

my reply

Yes, I removed the monitor today to give to <name> as there were no connections to it so I assumed it was free

As soon as <name> asked me about it I replaced it

Sorry for the brief inconvenience


As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,
