Of­fice toi­lets blocked: Brenda to clean from the desk

Muscat Daily - - WORLD -

Lon­don, UK - It might be too early call it, but we’ll put it out there any­way - a lady called Brenda is of­fi­cially the un­sung hero of 2017.

She’s the sort of per­son who is left - quite lit­er­ally - clean­ing up af­ter oth­ers. But her em­ploy­ees - who­ever they are - may have re­cently asked too much of her.

As in, they’ve asked her to do the sort of job we wouldn’t wish on our arch neme­sis - it’s lit­er­ally that bad.

The loos in Brenda’s place of work have packed up and the plumber is not due to come and fix them un­til the next day. What do you ask your em­ploy­ees to do? Go else­where? Hold it in?

Or a no­tice which reads:

‘Please do not use the toi­lets as there has been a block­age. The plumber will be here first thing to­mor­row morn­ing, so for the rest of the day please use the pub­lic toi­lets in the car park’.

‘In case of emer­gen­cies, please wrap your stools in news­pa­per and leave on your desk. Brenda will come round with her trol­ley and col­lect them at 5.30pm’.

‘Please note that any stools passed out of busi­ness hours are your own re­spon­si­bil­ity and must be dis­posed of at your own risk’. The note was posted by Twit­ter user Chris Shaw, who said it had hap­pened at his friend James' of­fice.
