Public Sector Consulting - unique challenges

 
#1 Public Sector Consulting - unique challenges
30/06/2010 18:25

Andrew

I am working on a long-term public sector project, and along with the rest of the team, received an email requiring us all to "contribute £2 per month to cover the cost of our tea, coffee and milk consumption". My problem is that I am unable to reply to this without betraying my contempt for their petty, small minded, bean-counterish, provincial behaviour.

How would you handle this?

see... my problem is that I am unable to reply to this without betraying my contempt for your petty, small-minded, arrogant, urban snob complex.

Just kidding. £2 a month? Expense it under "miscellany, amusements and what-not".

Do you work for PA ? If so, ask Middo can you borrow his milk.

He usually keeps a stash behind his chino press

what bankable cost savings would you say your long term public sector project delivers? I'm always on the look out for suggestions to send to George Osbourne....

I would just drink water instead.

£2 per month is very cheap anyway, given how much tea and coffee public sector staff consume. You never see a public sector worker walking around the office without a mug in his/her hand.

Next they'll be charing you for toilet roll if you take a 5hit at work.

recruiter too to Andrew (#1)

Sorry: which is the side that’s been petty and small minded here? Perhaps the person objecting to paying £2 a month....?

Why the hell should anyone other than the people consuming it pay for tea/coffee etc?
