At A Loo’s End

Is That A New Version Of The Lambeth Waltz?

Phone operators at Scotland Yard's control room will have to make a record of when they go to the loo. Authorities say the new rules will stop staff at Lambeth's control room from taking unnecessary breaks. Employees will have to note toilet visits as a "code three" and they will be recorded on a database.

FOOTNOTE: Give pees a chance.

Unbelievable management decision! Funny pun!

Jazz said...

Your title and footnote on this one are brilliant!

As for the news item... that is just insane. And then what, they'll decide someone is peeing too much and fire them?

Brian Miller said...

love the footnote...

seriously?maybe they should consider why the employees spend so much time there...possibly taking too much "stuff" from management?

Shadow said...

right, i'm definately not gonna work there!

Lee said...

I'm with everyone on this. Horrible stunt that management is pulling. Wouldn't want to work there at all. Great pun and title.

Cheers!

On my loo, would that need to be code 4?

'ere we go again! Nuff said!

Loved your witty title & footnote. Well done!

Wonder if that means you'd get in trouble for having a weak bladder?

Next step will be requiring employees to wear Depends to eliminate (pun intended) the need for those pesky bathroom breaks.

I'm surprised they didn't make it "Code 1" and "Code 2" so they could track things on a more elemental level. Good grief, who is their database administrator? Clearly he has "Code 2" for brains!

AUGHGHGH!!!
I just had a flashback to 1989. The company where I worked got some "efficiency expert" in to institute Total Quality Management (TQM) which I immediately renamed Torquemada. We had hundreds of codes for every activity, INCLUDING bathroom breaks. There was even a code for recording codes. It was ludicrous.
(But your titles and footnote were hilarious!)
