Another Eye Sore

I once got a telling off at work, I needed to do some work on the car, so threw an extension out of the window, out with the grinder and a few minutes later the work was done. I then got hauled up before the MD, and was told that I could not do that as I had been using the companies electricity (we were and electricity supply company).

at this point I completely upset the MD in his telling off by fishing in my pocket, hauling out a 50p piece, slapping it on his desk, and saying , I am sorry I used the electric without firstly asking, will this cover the cost. all i got told was dont do it again as the MD hadnt prepared an argument to cover that eventuality.

Peter, you're sounding like me there, being a tad synical. 

You forgot to mention the required "feasibility studies" "health and safety discussions" etc, and the look out and back up teams in case someone breaks a finger nail. 

They would need the emergency services standing by just in case !!!!! 

Broken finger nails can be very painful and life threatening

Plus officer reports, chief executive's report, officer time (in triplicate), committee meetings, site visits and contributions to the general reserve. going through the motions of consultations even though decisions have already been made.

That would require sick leave and subsequent cover which would involve the HR department who's charge to the Nav Account would need verifying and so the circle of seat polishing becomes self sustaining and perpetual! The owner of the lost nail taking early retirement due to the resultant stress and trauma.

The manicure costs for these people must run into thousands.

It's the cost of colour matching the nail varnish that does it!

All written in jest but with more than a ring of truth!
