I'm usually too preoccupied to put any effort into April Fools, however this year I decided to do something funny since I'm now working in the office a few days a week.
This morning I placed a roll of toilet paper below each person's desk and sent the following email to everyone, addressed from the general manager, Colin.
SUBJECT: some house-keeping
After reviewing the amount of petty cash spent on toilet paper each fortnight, I will now be enforcing a new TP Ration Program to ensure we don't exceed our toilet paper budget.
You will be responsible for your own roll of toilet paper, which will be kept underneath your desk for safe keeping while not in use. If you squander your allocated roll before the fortnight is over, a replacement roll will be purchased and docked automatically from your next pay.
You will also be responsible for any clients' toiletry requirements that are incurred whilst meeting with you. If a client is meeting with more than one person, each staff member will contribute an equal percentage of TP.
I appreciate your efforts in making Bigfish a cost-efficient working environment.
PS. For those unsure of the recommended rate of consumption, I suggest a maximum of 2 sheets for number 1's, and a maximum of 8 sheets for number 2's.
