Creating Excellence in Taunton…

A great training day in Taunton on the 28th September.

A lecture through the Creating Excellence organisation who are linked to CABE. The idea is to raise the level of quality within the built environment through the use of design review panels, involving notable and experienced architects, urban designers, landscape architects etc.

Inspiring day but still have to review my notes and follow up a few of the ideas!

Giant work fruit box…

We are trying a different approach to the fruit box this week. It a super-giant work fruit box, which contains 4 individual fruit boxes, with oranges, bananas, grapes and apples.

It has 50 portions of fruit in there and so far we’ve just given one to each of us, but Jamie has already had 2 of his apples and most of the grapes are gone! Actually, most of the bananas are gone too!

Credit crunch…

Just read a great email from a work colleague, relating to general work happenings…

Dear employees,

Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown of economy, Management has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 40 years of age and above on early retirement. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to management to be eligible for the SHAFT scheme (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW programme (Scheme Covering Retired Early Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Management deems appropriate.

Persons who have been RAPED can only get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependants & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by Management.

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. Management has always prided itself on the amount of SHIT it gives employees. Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring to the attention of your Supervisor. They have been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

Sincerely,

The Management
