I know the situation at Charlton is dire and our owner is an idiot but it was difficult to suppress a smile about this story from the Evening Standard last night –
a staff member who wanted to eat a packet of crisps at their desk asked their line manager for permission who in turn called HR to check if it was allowed who in turn told them that they needed to ring the facilities department for approval.
Surely this is either fake news or a joke. It really can’t be true can it ?.. but if it is and that’s the level of common sense prevailing amongst the staff then maybe Hercule Von Twonk is right to withhold bonus payments.
