Amanda Crisp Posted March 24, 2020 Share Posted March 24, 2020 (edited) So I work in a “Critical Industry”, meaning that as the government advises people to stay home - *we* are ramping up to 7-day weeks 🙂 This is not a commentary on our schedule 🙂 What entertained me tonight was how much joy an act of minor insubordination brought the workforce.... So as soon as I got here, I found out that we had a new shortage. We already got through “Medical Masks”, “Exam gloves” and Printer Toner....but this one had people stressing; we were out of the free coffee for the lunchroom. Evidently, the coffee service stopped along with everything else and as we’re running at 130% - we sucked it down quickly. So I’ve got people looking at me -plainly distressed- and I’m on the spot to say or do something. So, I gathered up a couple of strong looking people and we went upstairs..... The Office Staff is Working From Home and for some reason - their 10% of our workforce has 4x the coffee stored in their kitchenette as Operations is allotted. There was a big sign on the cabinet that was left by a long-gone and un-beloved Administrator; “These Coffee Supplies for Admin Staff Only. I’m Serious” The protective force field failed to strike us dead as we redistributed the Company Property down to the main lunchroom..... My offgoing counterpart was in the lunchroom when our little parade came through and he plainly was concerned about what was up.....one of my helpers told him we were “stealing”..... So the coffee crisis was averted, the Resident Manager thought the whole thing was completely understandable when I called him after the fact..... (I’ve never heard him giggle before) But the part I keep hearing about is the look of satisfaction on my face when I gave that sign a vigorous yank.........I *may* have said a bad-word too....... I have issues. Edited March 24, 2020 by AmandaKeen 4 11 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
