Here I stand with a rainbow in each eye

Maisie is trying to buy two anti-glare screens for computers in this building.

Corporate Purchasing doesn't list anti-glare screens as they say they are an unnecessary expense because all new PCs have flat screens.

Maisie cannot nip out to buy a couple of anti-glare screens from the shop across the way for £10 each because she is not allowed to buy any goods not listed by Corporate Purchasing and certainly not from anywhere no longer included in the Suppliers List after Corporate Purchasing accidentally deleted the file a couple of months ago and haven't yet either found a backup or manually entered all the known existing suppliers.

So in order to save £20 we are having to buy a couple of brand new computer screens.

You know where this is going, don't you?

Yes, I think I do know where this is going. Glad I don't pay taxes in the UK any more :-)

And thus is Maisie Momma Bee.

Urm, OK-a-ay, let's make up a sentence with words "hell" and "handcart" in that order...
