Workers at risk of feeling overworked, over-regulated and under-leisured may take heart in reading this notice, which was discovered in the ruins of a London office building.

    Wonderful! I wonder what the conditions were like pre-near-Utopia?

    I printed this out and our director, with very good humour, announced the changes to the staff ... it provided a great moment of team building as we all pondered on what utopian work conditions were if these were so close!

    Funny stuff. A friend was lamenting that his company introduced "austerity measures" which meant that all office plants were removed, the coffee machines were decommissioned and fresh fruit Mondays (where staff are provided with a selection of fresh fruit) have been cancelled. Who knows - next they might have to start wearing clothing of a 'sober nature' :)
