A note about Company Time.  
I just want you all to know that wasting your time, playing around on the internet, commenting with these LiveJournals? Isn't an appropriate use of company time. I'll expect you to mark down any time that you spend on this and report it to payroll.

It's only the responsible thing to do.

You do realize that you're "wasting your time" too, right?

I am already accounting for any time that is spent using this. I even have a chess clock to ensure I am using the accurate rate of minutes spent doing this. I am allowed two fifteen minute breaks and I do not plan on going over them.

[Jim stands up and peers over at Angela's desk and...yep. She's got a chess clock. He sits back down and is fairly certain something inside of him just died a little bit. :|]

Wow. You have a chess clock.

So let me get this straight then. You're saying that you've never gone over? Not even once?

It seemed the appropriate thing to do, since it is apparent that the only way to efficiently communicate with some people in the office is through this.

It's remedial and insulting that no one even reads their emails completely. Michael won't even look at it unless I put Fw: in front of the subject line.

Really? Well if it's really urgent should try putting the words "Nigerian Princess" in the subject. He'll definitely read it then.

I like to put "Hilarious Joke" and then watch him try to figure out the punchline.
mynameisdwight on August 29th, 2009 04:44 am (UTC)
That is also acceptable. I hope you're taking notes, Angela.
Jim Halpert: really?fathalpert on August 29th, 2009 04:47 am (UTC)
Yes, this is crucial information for everyone in the office to have, especially Accounting.

You know what? We should probably forward it out.
mynameisdwight on August 29th, 2009 04:53 am (UTC)
That is a great idea. You know why don't you forward it to me and then I can forward it to everyone else. Then it'll be a double forward.

And everyone knows that those are twice as important.
Jim Halpert: um...fathalpert on August 29th, 2009 05:03 am (UTC)
Michael would definitely take it more seriously, anyway. But do you think we can forward him our rules on how to deal with Michael?
mynameisdwight on August 29th, 2009 05:07 am (UTC)
Oh, absoultely.. If the subject is "Fw: Fw: Hilarious Joke" there won't be a problem.
Jim Halpert: ???fathalpert on August 29th, 2009 05:08 am (UTC)
I'm more wondering what will happen when he actually reads it.
mynameisdwight on August 29th, 2009 05:17 am (UTC)
Either Michael will realize that he needs to check ALL of his email more often, which, in this scenario might also mean that something catastrophic has happened elsewhere due to the tremendous butterfly effect that sort of thing would cause or...

...he'd be too busy trying to figure out the punchline to care.

Jim Halpertfathalpert on August 29th, 2009 06:45 am (UTC)
You don't think he might go all... Michael on us?
mynameisdwight on August 29th, 2009 08:07 pm (UTC)
I think it's a given that no matter what we do he'll still go Micahel on us.
Karen Filippelli: [express] computer smilenotfar_enough on August 29th, 2009 05:09 am (UTC)
Why not go for the kill, "FW: fw: Hilarious Joke - From Nigerian Princess" and just make sure the rest of the day he's looking for where to send his account numbers to get the punchline.
mynameisdwight on August 29th, 2009 08:07 pm (UTC)
Oh. Now that is a good idea.

Yeah, what Tuna said. The fact that you made this entry totally was a waste of time.
