AN OFFICE’S tech team appear to be unusually reliant on old-school Post-It notes, colleagues have observed.
The IT people, who often have at least two monitors, spend a disproportionate amount of time writing things on Post-It notes and physically sticking them on the nearest wall, it has emerged.
Workmates of the allegedly highly intelligent and computer-savvy staff do not understand why they are using something so old-fashioned or why they could need so many.
Marketing manager Emma Bradford said: “I visited the fifth floor and there were these collections of hand-written bits of fluorescent paper everywhere.
“It looked like one of those TV shows where they’re investigating a massive, wide-ranging conspiracy, but these Post-Its didn’t say ‘1975 Red Brigades bombing – same Semtex?’ but ‘add billing module’ and ‘cache clears 48 hours 12pm’.
“Shouldn’t they just be using, you know, computers?”
Network engineer Nathan Muir said: “The more you work with computers the more aware you are of what unreliable bodged-together crap they really are. Post-It notes you can trust.”
