A work colleague has only gone and distributed all his Christmas cards in the office 10 minutes before everyone downs tools for the seasonal break, it has been confirmed.
The decision to put a card for absolutely everyone in your 50-strong office in everyone’s pigeon hole was taken by Mike Jones, 46, in the Accounts department, and has left everyone scrambling round for an emergency spare card.
‘Shit, I’ve already used up my floaters for Sadie in HR and the deputy regional manager for sales – don’t know his name so I just put ‘all the best, from Dave’ ‘ said Dave McBride in a panic. ‘I didn’t even know Jonesy still worked here to be honest’.
Legislation is currently being considered to prevent cards being sent within the last 2 working days before Christmas, since most of them aren’t picked up until the New Year, when they have the feel of a very stale turd.
‘I don’t give to receive’ said Jones sniffily in the pub with everyone else after work finished, ‘but my spreadsheet suggests only 2 if you f@!kers have bothered to return my gifting gesture. Merry Christmas!’
