Problem of the day
Here's the FT's "Dear Lucy" (Kellaway) problem of the day and one of the solutions:
"To cut costs, more colleagues were last year crammed into the office where I work. The lavatories struggle to cope. Now we learn that these will be further reduced in number to create an "executive washroom" for the exclusive use of top management and their guests. Should I take this as an incentive to claw my way further up the greasy pole so that I can sample its delights, or stage a sit-in to oppose such segregation?"
"Clog up the toilets in the executive lavatory just before the working day begins. Post placards on your lavatories stating 'for exclusive use of staff, no upper management permitted.' Your point will be made."
