    Default What not to do at work. Tip no. 1

    Imagine if you will, my office. Its a portakabin type affair, you enter a door in the middle, to the left is my office with its own lockable door, and to the right is the camp boss' office (he isnt really, he's very hetero) again with its own lockable door.
    Habitually whoever is the first one out of the office at night waves a cheery goodnight to the other, and locks his door and leaves. The other one then locks his door and leaves, locking the padlock on the outside of the portakabin. (Can you see where this is going yet?)
    Last night, I hadnt seen the camp boss leave, but as I left my office, his door was locked and there were no signs of light or life, so I locked my door, and left, locking the padlock on the outside. (Got it now?)
    At around 0330 this morning I was awoken by my guards, who asked me if I could possibly unlock the office as the camp boss had been stuck inside for hours. DOHHHHHHH!!!!!
    I went and unlocked, the poor man wasnt best pleased. I did explain that his office was shut and the lights were off, but that just didnt cut the mustard.
    I dont know what he was doing in his office with the lights off, and to be fair, I dont want to know either, but he is an angry man today.
    Frosty day in Africa I fear.

    Ooops!

    Tip No.2
    If you are going to really slate your boss and the size of her enormous @rse, first make sure she isn't kneeling down the other side of your desk out of sight (yes, it was a really big desk)

    Lights off, door locked until 3am ... I'm guessing it involves websites of some sordid kind

    What was your boss doing that he needed the lights off?
