Fun and games at work yesterday

12.30pm : Distribution section has their regular weekly half-hour Worktime Listening and Learning meeting. Among the various nuggets of information dealt out to them by management is "35 jobs must must be cut from the Centre's budget in Feb".

1.00pm : General panic starts spreading throughout the Mail Centre after Distribution's meeting finishes.

1.32pm : Certain subjects get asked about immediately in my section's Worktime Listening and Learning. This is the first I've get to hear about it. Section manager looks blank and promises to look into it.

2.00pm : Afternoon shift starts coming in, and are greeted by the story. Panic deepens.

3.45pm : Apparently, the quote should have been "35 HOURS must must be cut from the Centre's budget in Feb". Panic stops, looks vaguely embarassed and slinks off into a corner.
