Well everyone is back at work now.

Well apart from me … obviously.

I can’t even begin to imagine how stressful it is for you… Though I did try when I was languishing on the chaise longue this morning.

So, once again, I offer some help.

1: Print out the picture,

2: Cut along the dotted line

3: Display above your desk or workspace.

When colleague approaches with beady eye and sheet of A4 - adopt strained expression and point in direction of sign.

No need to speak.

It's not the working, it's the getting up.

I'll print out the sign for my bastard alarm clock.

Chaise longue?
The world looked fresh and bright in the stiff wind on top of a nearby hill this morning, when I was out for a walk.
Not working is pretty good.

Happy New Year

You'd be on long-term sick leave anyway with that toe.

Mr P. has a sign with "Far Cough" on it. He's in BT Customer Services.

(Not really)

I'm def going to print that off and take it work when I go back on Monday. Would rather be lounging on a chaise lounge though!

Dave: My aim is to please - but somehow I can’t see you sitting behind a desk all day!

Pete: Sorry - but your time will come - and you will probably be out there at 5.30a.m. looking for a lesser spotted dowitcher.

Geoff: Ah - Getting up - I remember it well. Nowadays I only set the bastard when I have a flight to catch - otherwise it’s leisurely coffee, toast and marmalade.
But as I said above - your day will come.
I waited 60 years for this!

Stitch: ‘Pretty good’ is right - I may go out on the hills tomorrow.

Heather: You’ve put your finger on it there. When you don’t have to work - shopping is a real temptation - but bugger it - YES YES YES - after all it’s only money!

Murph: One of the disadvantages of not working is that you can’t have sick leave. If I had been more organised when I was employed I might have mananged something along the lines of Stress, bunions or general debility. But I was one of these people who hardly ever had a day off. What a waste.
I thought Mr P was the Devil’s Avocaat!

Vic: You get back to work - you don’t appreciate the chaise longue unless you’ve earned it.

Yes, but how is the plaster?

Beth: Better than nowt!
Soon be weekend.

Salvadore: Still holding fast - no sign of gangrene yet.
I’m only a beginner at this ‘watching’ lark - must try harder.

This Google beta thingy is really getting on my nerves...Anyways: belated Happy New Year!
I find a "may be" useful - it gets the person out the office first, before sending the "On reflection NO" email.

I hate it when I go to the Blogger page and have to click on ‘old blogger’.

I don’t need reminding.

So you’re a ‘maybe’ type eh! Shame on you for raising a person’s hopes only to dash them to the ground
