Ointment

In an effort to save the company some pennies, our uber-efficient-Nazi-tyrannical office manager informed me this morning that she has been growing an aloe plant at her desk, and when the Neosporin runs out of the First Aid kit, she doesn't intend to replenish the supply, thanks to her home-grown salve.

She's already taken away Post-Its and replaced them with squares of scrap paper and paper clips. What's next? Our desks?

Oh my- some people take things a little bit too far!

LOL. Well, I guess giving up post-its and neosporin is better than having to give up your job. Wow - let's hope that office manager is just taking things too far.

Random! I'm cool with the scrap paper for post-its (as long as it's really scrap and it's keeping it from the wasteland), but it'll be interesting to see how well the aloe works out (might be a nice green treat)? Either way, how much did generic neosporin really cost (and how fast were y'all going through it - what is it, crazy papercut week)?

Ha! That totally makes me laugh! Just be thankful that she hasn't come up with a more economic solution for the toilet paper in the ladies' restrooms!

Been reading your blog for a litte while! Always good reading!
