Nightmares...












My middle name is Patience!
I know every single one of our employees by name.
I try to remember their birthdays and I usually spend half an hour trying to create a personalised card for those who have been with us a long time.

If they are off on the sick, I try to remember to ring them to find out how they are.

If they begin wondering whether catering is really for them, I sit with them and go through the whole thing of analysing their doubts. I do my Oprah... and try to help them find the way.

Now all this is when I've had my Weetabix for breakfast...

If not, then I point to the above sign! It works wonders!

Just joking! I only like Fruit and Fibre! Posted by Picasa

Hmm... If I was sick, and my employer called me, I would be afraid... But that's because I'm never really sick :)

Great post! Made me laugh and smile, then I got stressed out!
Hope they are well & come to work. Love all the colored words too.

SMooch,
Your Tart

Ooh I'd have hated it if my boss had called me at home...you must be very popular when you do that..;-)

btw - I also wanted to say how great your blog looks with all those colourful words...it's so bouncy.

how's the shoulder?

Viking, touch wood! What's "really sick"?

Hayden, you mean a good slap!

Jodie, if they don't come back to work, I smash their kneecaps!

Wendy, it's all about that little thing that means you care. Believe me, sometimes it's only because it has to be done!
As for the colours, for a while I didn't have time to waffle on but nowadays, so much time and so little to do!
The shoulder is agony, still but it's getting better, I think!

Yes Sir! Yes Boss! Yes Massa [Master].

Which part is the joke? The Fruit 'n' Fibre or the sign? Hahaha.

I had the dickens of a time trying to get on to your blog, Cream. I should show it your sign. Work, work. Work dammit.
