Wrapping presents, I'm crap at it! I use to get my PA to wrap them :D until I got rumbled, it means more if you do them yourself apparently.....

The presents look like a 5 year old has done them...

Watched a Gavin & Stacey xmas special over xmas funny enough, Smithy wrapped all his in foil, it's a genius idea in fairness, Not sure it would go down very well, meaning, she wouldn't go down for a awhile..

Never! They can even see the look of excitement in themselves if you wrap it the right way

Why is not a legal requirement for anyone in a senior management position to have the faintest idea of what information they will need to do their jobs any more than 24 hours before it is needed?

"Can you please drop everything and get me this completely new set of data by 4pm?"
"4pm today?"
"Yep"

Two days later:
"Was the data ok?"
"Oh, we didn't need it in the end"

Without a doubt it has to be "the right way"

Silver post-its could work but still needs some careful placing to ensure no gaps can give it away

I truly believe that the Peter principle is valid in most companies large enough to have some sort of hierarchy

Close allies of people who insist on having their breakfast at work, at their desks, using most of the available milk in the process.

Eat before you come into work, FFS!
