Routine — 4 Comments

  1. Back in my days of retail management the store manager had to every week submit a wages sheet to head office detailing any overtime worked or absences by staff.
    At the top of the sheet was a notation to the effect ‘If no change since last week say so here’
    One of our managers would every week painstakingly inscribe the letters ‘S  O’

    • In the UK Civil Service, one commenter decided to moderate his incandescent margin comment on a memo paragraph so, instead of scribbling ‘Bollocks’, he wrote the more subtle ‘Round Objects’ alongside the offending script.
      This was promptly returned with the question “Who is Mr Round and to what precisely does he object?”.
