We can all make mistakes when we delve through our short change but I can't see a lot of excuse for leaving an old halfpenny piece in the staff milk kitty. Noreen has almost as much hassle about the milk kitty as she does about reference periodical invoices. Here's another of this morning's:
"Why do you have to go and buy another packet of teabags?" asks Mary.
"Because we've run out."
"There's some in Kevin's locker."
"That's Kevin's hospitality stash that he's bought himself so that he can make visitors a cup of tea."
"But there's already tea and coffee for hospitality. You just need to ask T.Aldous for the jars."
[Aside from the practical difficulties we shall treat this with suspicion. This comes as news to all of us: T.Aldous is always moaning that the council won't let him buy coffee and milk from a hospitality fund.]
"Obviously he doesn't know this."
"So we can use his teabags then..."
"I'll just go and buy a fresh packet."
