The covers of this book are too far apart

We've all just been issued with our official Helminthdale Stress Handbook for Staff. Much to our surprise it doesn't include any tips on how to create far more stress than anyone could ever need. Evidently there must be a official Helminthdale Stress Handbook for Managers with that sort of thing in it.

Having finally convinced a library assistant that she really needs to talk to somebody about the stress she's under she takes up a suggestion in the book and contacts the council's stress management hotline. Who tells her that she needs to be referred by her line manager.

Who happens to generate 80% of all the stress experienced in the building.
