Some Guidelines

Taken from DIT staff manual, Procedures for dealing with workplace difficulties:

It is not acceptable to:
  • Use bad/inappropriate language to a colleague
  • Be verbally abusive either face to face, by email or telephone
  • Make inappropraite personal remarks or jokes about colleagues
  • Use a sarcastic tone when dealing with colleagues
  • Behave in a patronizing, dismissive way
  • Use nicknames for colleagues which may be offensive or hurtful
  • Repeatedly arrive late for work or when scheduled for a particular task

What the hell am I supposed to do all day?!

1: Wear a false mustache.
2: Glue everything to the floor
3: Use extravagant lies and hint darkly that you are only working there as part of a witness protection program.
4: Develop an annoying wheezy cough.

The choices are limitless, really.

A 'false' moustache? What's wrong with my real one?

Well, you'd get the 'two-tone' effect, which is all the rage with 'the kids'.

Besides, a subtle Errol Flynn mustache might go well with the handlebar style.
