    I hadn't even begun to think about personal printing, although I do a lot of work printing at home too so I think I'm even Stevens there :-)

    I once sang the wrong name during a birthday morning tea then looked shocked and stared at the person singing next to me.

    I also always decline birthday cake because I'm 'being healthy', then sneak back in the staff room between recess and lunch when no one is in there and shove a piece in my mouth.

    My boss is really forgetful so if I am late submitting something to her I act confused when she reminds me and say that I submitted it aaaages ago, which buys me an evening of frantic typing so that I can print another copy for her the next morning :-)

    This actually made me lol! And it reminded me of the farewell card card I got from a previous workpkace and someone had written 'happy birthday' in it

    I occasionally post personal letters using office stationery and charge the postage to my department.... I feel like such a crim! *checks out the front window for cop cars

    @littlelove this made me giggle so much.

    I've signed someone else's name on a work birthday card (which was confusing for all concerned) but I think I've managed to always get the occasion right!

    ETA @~Marigold~ was it you who posted the card that your friend sent you and it was like a birthday card and shed written happy easter inside or something like that? My memory bone is being tickled.

    Ive 'borrowed' plenty of office stationary over the years and done many workplace printing jobs.
    I'll also confess to sending my own letters in the office mail.

    The only thing ive broken was a glass jug when i tried to fill it with chilled water directly after id taken it out of the dishwasher. It shattered in my hands - i think the 3 stitches i received was punishment enough

    Haha my last school I work in must have been pretty chilled.

    Personal Printing. Check. Like, a lot. Daily.

    Borrowing stationary. Check. I'm sure they ordered more because they knew I would be attracted to it like a bower bird.

    Personal Phone Calls. All. The. Time. I would call my bank to check my balance, I'd call DF. I'd call my Mum. And I'd purposely wait until I got to school so I didn't spend my phone credit.

    Sneaking into the staffroom to have a second piece of slice when no one was looking was also a given. It's not my fault- the lady supplying them made them too delicious!

    I can't remember breaking anything though. Often the copier jammed on me when I was in a hurry so I would just walk off and leave it there.

    Oh. I know. Shameful! When I went back to work after I had the boys, I often 'borrowed' books from the library. Now, small school- no librarian- no borrowing system. It was basically an honour system. Um, I still have A LOT of them. I can't take them back now! They will know I have had them for YEARS!

    I never buy my own Panadol. I may borrow the odd sheet or two from work. (But everyone including my unit manager does it too!)
