A WORKER is pretending to spend a whole day deleting emails after a two-week holiday.
Marketing co-ordinator Wayne Hayes claims to be having a ‘nightmare’ managing his ‘literally thousands’ of emails, even though he is really just dicking about on the internet.
Hayes said: “I’ve got emails with spreadsheets, emails with photos, emails that are just words…so many emails. Sadly I won’t be able to get any actual work done today, or for most of tomorrow, because of deleting these damn emails.”
However colleagues pointed out that Hayes probably has only about a dozen emails if you don’t count all the ones that are obviously irrelevant like ‘Re: Jan’s mug missing again’ and one titled ‘Free cake in kitchen’ from last Tuesday.
Co-worker Nikki Hollis said: “He could just delete all the bullshit ones without reading them, which would take about ten minutes.
“I can see his monitor reflected in the window and he’s currently looking at a slide show called ‘Jennifer Aniston’s 20 Hottest Moments’.
“To be honest though, our work is totally pointless anyway and we’re all basically prisoners here, so fair play to him.”
