Oh, dear, I'm sorry! I hope you're doing alright. I've been thinking about you!

I'd offer you a beer, but it seems you've already helped yourself...

Thanks sweetheart.

Yeah I'm fine, got a call about ten minutes ago and apparently Kate's funeral was beautiful.

Enters, takes off his parka and snowshoes, looks around for a cold one.

Hey y'all, good evening. I've been busy all day and I am wresting with one of the great mysteries of the universe. In a few days it's my wife's birthday, and it just came to me that a guy should never mention her age, yet it's a mortal sin to forget her birthday. I need to sit down and relax for awhile. Somehow I feel I'm either dancing on thin ice or juggling live grenades.

Please, what's on tap, and it really needs to be cold. Hmm, where's the dart board?

I'll join you with a Canadian Club.
I once drank Canada Dry, so they deported me.

I was just reminded of a funny story from the previous forum that I thought I ought to share with you all to show how much more friendly spammers used to be.

A member signed up and set up a thread selling irons. Fair enough, open and shut case: he's a spammer, he's now banned. All well and good.

Until this evening, when he emails me asking two things:

1 - why was he banned?

and

2 - while he has my attention, would I like to buy an iron?



Suddenly our recent spam invasion seems very amateur. :lol:

Send him a STARCH response and tell him to get the CREASES out of his approach.
Tell him that although he's a spammer, the IRONy is that You don't really want to put his name on the banned BOARD with the other trolls.

Try that Pf1mod and things should STEAM more clear and You will be happy You haven't BOSCHed the way You handled it.

Edit: Hope everything FOLDS nicely with this one.

A week ago, three of my employees complained that someone has been ransacking the fridge and the kitchen area, opening their lunch bags, stealing food from the fridge and other stuff from the cabinets. I had a sign put up that the kitchen door should be kept locked at all times and all employees would be provided with a key. Today, a completely different employee complained that it was a pain getting to the kitchen now that it was locked because he had to make sure he was carrying the key around all the time and in the end he blamed me saying "You shouldn't inconvenience everybody else just to accommodate 2-3 people complaining of their food being stolen". I said "You've got a good point there, what do you want me to do?". He said he wanted the door kept open again to which I replied "I'd like to accommodate you, problem is you're the only person complaining about it....". He stared for a second and I thought I overdid it for a second but then he said "Right, I'm taking down the sign too".

A tall cold one please. Thank God it's Friday.

What's your location Falb.
It's 5am here now. Edit: "on Saturday morning"

Guessing your ay least 75 degrees West of Greenwich.

Editx2: if all employees have a key, isn't that the same as if the kitchen was open :lol:
Have a double JD too.

Aww, thanks!!!

Word to the wise, everyone: don't stick your fingers in a printer, even to fix it. The printer suddenly crushes them without warning.

I live in Boston US and as for the keys, I should have mentioned that our kitchen is open to anyone, not just our employees so the first purpose of locking the door was to make sure that no outsider created problems any longer. The second purpose is to send a subtle message to the insider culprit (if that's the case) to beware.

When I was managing a company back in the late 70s, the managing director ,who also used the staff canteen, told me the place was like a pig sty & would I do something about it.
So at lunch time the next day I spoke to the crew & told them that the MD was upset at the state of the place. They were unimpressed. They were unimpressed.
So I told them that he said they were not fit to eat with pigs.
A huge outcry ensued.
I said don't worry i defended you, & they nodded in approval.
I said. I told him that you were. Almost lynched.
I then told them that if things did not improve I was reducing the 10 Am 10 minute tea break to 15 minutes.

Staggers in, takes off his parka and snowshoes, looks around and squints in the friendly low light.

Man, I've got to get some faster snowshoes, either I'm getting slower or those polar bears are getting quicker. Evening folks, it's a fine day, no, it's a great day. Not only is it Freyaday, but today marks the official start of the season. This is what I've been waiting all winter for, and finally, time to celebrate.

Barkeep, or wench, do you have any Foster's, in commemoration of the race in Australia?

CLINK

Cheers all.
