Die, all of you
Presumably they're reaching down to pull the plug out - how much more effort is it to switch it off while they're down there?
And this isn't an isolated case, as it's happened in the last three offices I've worked in
Somebody needs to make a stand
Y'know, so it's like, off
and I have to wade through an invisible fug of live electricity and I get static on my ankles.
"no...im a baker!"
who made our cleaner have a stroke the other night
he hadn't turned off whilst he was sleeping?
thing where i have to turn off any plug socket that isn't in use.
It's quite annoying actually!
At home, or even in my friends' homes, I do this. I even did it at work for a while. But I'm still relatively new at this place, and it's an open plan office, so I have to resist the urge to bend down switching them off to avoid looking like the new mental kid
should be sensitive to OCD in higher-ranking employess. What the hell are they doing to earn their £2.90 an hour? Slackers.
anyway i love her
I'm surprised you didn't need two cleaners.
that isnt even half the rooms!
sorry, i just fudgkin love that house, so different from the cave i lived in, in london.
but I do find it interesting/funny how cleaning staff are treated as second class citizens in any workplace. They're treated like servants. But dirty servants. It's very odd.
They don't know anything about the pharmaceutical industry either!
It is the cleaners who are doing this, as they're in every evening and nobody else ever has any need to use the plug sockets. If I switch one off, it'll be back on the next day. hmmm...
In related news, the other day as I left work (slightly later than usual), I noticed a cleaner from the building next door outside hoovering the pavement. Tough gig
it is you with the problem.
I hope a cleaner kills you.
I HP[E YOU NEVER SEE A TREE AGAIN!
BRITAIN IS ONE OF THE ONLY PLACES IN THE WORLD THAT BOTHERS TO PUT SWITCHES ON PLUGS!
but pluged plugs do
someone could kill themselves. THEN THEY'D FEEL GUILTY, WOULDN@T THEY
all of you, never leave a plug socket switched on with nothing in it! switches were added to plug sockets for a reason, well, several reasons probably, but one of those was SAFETY. BE SAFE, KIDS.
stealing plastic flowesr on sunday. "nice work" i told her
Yes to this. Any plug socket that is left in the on position when there is nothing plugged in is an affront to the Lord, as well as pissing me right off
There is nothing wrong with plugs being turned on.
where we are, of course, from
Is that what you want? Do you want to fight me, Theo?
I'll just by a bunch of plug fronts from a hardware store and leave them lying around with the switch ON!
I can run off while you scrabble about setting things to rights. BWAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!
Besides, I'd be pathetic in a fight. It's probably for the best
