Haha this thread has totally tickled my funny bone, giggling over the office colour printing code, in my office we all have a code linked to us individually, so every time we copy something you have to enter your personal code first, and it's all being tallied up somewhere....

But yes, the front office lady alone has the colour copying code and we have to make our case to her when we want to use it. I forgot about that! And she had the only sports shed key for a while til I kicked up a stink about it.

I'm a vet and when I worked in private practice it was the head nurse who ran the show. They told all the vets where to go and when. Did the drug order, the banking. If we didn't have nurses the vets would be lost.

Who really has the power in your workplace?
I do payroll and accounts and I hear it all. I kind of like it because I can discuss with the other payroll lady. If I didn't have that outlet in sure it would be much less interesting.
The accounts I monitor fuel cards, printing, phone costs, credit cards

There are certainly people who think they have power lol...like the floor rep who sends frequent e-mails about the state of the fridge/dishwasher or why we can't have teddy-bear biscuits anymore...or that guy who walks around telling people how busy he is & how much he helps everyone & tries to order/organise everyone else etc. At least they are good for entertainment value in the office, ridiculous that they feel the need for these power trips.
The real power in the office thankfully rests with the senior managers & a few key staff members.

I don't know if anyone in particular has 'the power' in my office. My boss certainly has a lot of respect because he's so knowledgeable (he's in his mid 70's).
If anyone wants a supplier paid, I control the action right there. I also control the petty cash and I get very antsy if someone wants to be reimbursed for something that isn't really petty at all. If it's over $100 I'll often insist that we reimburse them via EFT instead, as I don't want them taking 'my cash' .
I control what we have for communal snacks (biscuits). I enforce a 'no poop' rule in the executive bathroom, and I get very disturbed if this rule is broken.
I guess I have some powers, but nothing terribly significant

My 3yo!! LOL.
But when I used to work, it was me in most of the jobs I have had. My last job, I had the power of a Director behind me, who trusted me implicitly to run the division. I knew everything that went on, all the processes, rules etc, so everyone used to come to me for advice and assistance. Or a chat and a gossip!
