It's bleeding Chico time

As part of our rudimentary staff development programme Jim has arranged a staff seminar for Assistant Librarians and Counter Supervisors over in Spadespit Community Centre. The arrangement was that he'd nip over at lunchtime to see how things were going and make sure that there wasn't anything missing, like flipchart paper or magic markers.

Imagine the staff's delight when the whole of Policy Team gatecrashes the seminar unannounced.

Only the most jaded churl would imagine that this was anything other than a show of high-level support and encouragement.

Opinion is divided evenly between:
  • They don't trust us to behave ourselves without supervision.
  • They don't trust Jim to behave himself without supervision.
  • They fancied a free lunch.

The opportunity for adding value to the event isn't wasted. Mary tells Kate:

"Ellie's off sick, so somebody needs to be sent over to Umpty to cover there tomorrow."

Cow guessing it's the free lunch.

Lunge time.
