Not making this up:

I took a call from IT to one of my coworkers. They told me he complained about not being able to receive email. So they sent him an email asking for more information.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

So I just got an email from HR directed at the whole company saying that "the use of cell phones, either personal or company-issued, is forbidden within company offices or installations during the workday."

I can't wait for the next time one of the owners call me and I can't answer. "I'm sorry, but it's your own cockamamie policy, boss!" :)


Wow, no work cell phone use at work. That would make my life much simpler. I don't even have an office phone number on my business cards.

Mine, too. One week the SIM chip on my phone quit working. it was a peaceful few days at work.

Also, for some reason several coworkers have the annoying habit of calling my number when looking for someone else, be it my extension or my cell.

Oh, and the policy was rescinded after a couple of weeks. It was as stupid as it sounds. The remarkable thing is that someone noticed.

I used to work at a company where the President spent several thousand dollars of company money on a second coffee machine (identical to the first) because he didn't want to wait while someone else was making a coffee. The machines were right next to each other so I often wondered what he'd do in the inevitable situation when both were being used when he walked in to the kitchen.

Our current copier loves to say the scanner is busy when you wake it from sleep mode and want to copy or scan a document.

Busy with what??


The old copier was funnier. If you awoke from sleep and fed it a thick sheaf of copies, it would process the first, then proceed to warm up, then process the rest. WTF??
