Thread: i sent an email to

  1. #1
    everyone in our office that read:
    Subject: pencil sharpeners
    if they are not emptied/cleaned out, they tend to become compacted and BURN OUT, turning them into a $30 piece of junk. please keep this in mind.
    one of the engineers got really mad and said that maybe
    I should go around empty them all since they are "too stupid to do it themselves".
    i admit iI was just a little snide, but really...

    Send out another e-mail apologizing for your assumption, and there will be a short class on the basics of pencil sharpener maintainance.
    Attendance is mandatory.

    And remind them that you were talking about pencil sharpeners not engineers.

    maybe i should buy them all the manual crank kind. that way they will know, when it is too hard to turn, it is time to empty it!

    Get them that hand deals that ya had in school, not the wall mouted ones, but the ones you have to hold over a trash can. Let them do that for a few months then go back.
    Never mind, that will never work, the wont know when the trash can is full!

    Managing people is very fun at times bigger the crew the more personalities come into the mix and can feed off each other
    The last place I managed had a nice employee lounge, the funny thing is nobody would take their crap out of the Fridge. I never used it, because of all the old moldy food left after weeks. I started to go in each week and throw everything out, started to get complaints so stopped. I have been gone for 6 months, talk to someone last Saturday and they said nobody has cleaned it since I left:yuk: :yuk:
    Pretty common problem from what I hear in other offices

    sounds like the engineer has a point. Have you considered that maybe they are to stupid to figure it out?
