    Default Workplace Confessional

    Do you, like me, have any deep dark secrets from work? Not the illegal 'we covered up the doctor's mistake that resulted in the death of a patient' kind, just the 'I'm glad no one at work knows this' kind...

    So...

    It was me that broke the photocopier on my first day at my school.

    And the urn the next day.

    And the lock on the staff toilet door a week later.

    I know the administrator password to our network and use it to secretly install the awesome fonts on one of the computers.

    When I lived across the road from school, I snuck across more than once after dark to 'borrow' a toilet roll.

    I used the work photocopier to photocopy something long for personal use.

    Don't tell anyone, ok?

    I don't know how to change the roll on the material hand drying thing in the toilets so I always leave it for the next person.

    I used to work in a play centre and sometimes, after we closed, the manager/owner (there were 2 co owners, one was cool) would bring in a bottle of wine for us to share while we cleaned and, more than once we "cleaned" the massive bumpy slides by sliding down sitting on towels after spraying them with wax!

    I sooo wish I could add to this workplace confessional - I really do. But I'm so lame - best I can come up with is when I may have accidentally printed out an extra 3 pages of a document and felt bad about wasting paper! Any personal printing we did we gave money into petty cash to cover it.

    I think I'd just feel too guilty not to 'fess up!

    All of these printing-related ones remind me of my personal printing at work. It was the start of uni semester and I needed to print 3 x 30-40 page unit outlines. I was printing them 10 pages at a time so no one would notice until the last one when I got lazy and printed it all at once. Just as I hit 'print', my manager wanted to catch up (on something unrelated!). Thankfully my colleague knew what I was doing so grabbed it off the printer for me!
