Patience Worn Thin

My patience that is.

It transpires that we are to be paid a visit from the head of our Big Christian Charity on Thursday. People, you would think Jesus himself was coming (again). Apparently the Rapture will be preceded by freak-outs, tantrums and urgent directives to Make Neat! Make Neat! and hide any non-approved items/office equipment/ideas.

In all seriousness, a manager from down the hall just walked in and wondered if we should take down a couple of the framed prints that are in this office. Too many $20 framed posters of Aegean seascapes (with whitewashed church and potted geraniums) equals decadence and a disregard for the Bible, I guess.

Were I a praying man, I'd be praying for strength right now.

Oh, Lord have mercy!

You may not be a praying man, but your a drinking one, so get to it!

My mum workd for Family and Community services, and the same thing happens every time the minister pays a visit. But mum thinks that the point of the ministerial visit is to show them how things really work, how overworked and underfunded everyone is.

Hide the porn, but remember that a tidy desk is the sign of something you don't want anyone to know about....
