Everything clear? Good.

As of today we did not have to use our fingerprint to swipe in, not like prior thr only response was from the employees putting bottles of purell on the fingerprint scanners.

Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land. Nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this period in history.

Fortunately everyone stays calm and refrains from panicking. Everything is under control and the seeds of chaos have not been sown at all.

I bought two large packs of 9 toilet rolls today just as the staff member was restocking them. When I came out the other end of the aisle everyone who saw me did a double take and then immediately swung their trollies around and started to do that fast walk thing that is blatantly running you're not fooling anyone.

HR announced today a request - not a requirement - that any employee traveling across borders - state borders or national borders - notify HR beforehand of their destination and the dates of their travel. Then they should call into work to notify of their return the day before they return.

Guarantee nobody at work does this.
