Guardianship is missing a bulletin board. It was in our dead file room next to my office. I don’t know why it would be removed without our permission, but it is gone.

Please return it if you have it. If you know who might have it, please let me know.

You’ll never find it, you know.

What? Does that mean you took it? Do you know who took it?

Toya,

Oh yes, I took it. Last night around eleven p.m., if you must know. I found myself quite unable to sleep and, with no recourse found in my usual methods of going to sleep (among them consuming an entire bottle of NyQuil), I realized that I should embark on an adventure of sorts.

I took the car, started it, and drove downtown. When I reached 5th Avenue, I had a sudden epiphany: Rather than taking part in my intended method of wearing myself out (starting fights in the honkey-tonks downtown), I would have a little bit of mischief. I pulled up to the curb outside of our building, entered, and went to the file room and stole away with the bulletin board.

You may check the security footage if you wish, but it won’t give you any hints as to where I hid it. Indeed, I believe that it would be very difficult for you to ascertain its location.

I can be quite clever, you see.

Best,

Hi James,

Toya forwarded me this e-mail exchange. I know that I’m technically not supposed to perform any of my duties since I’m currently on forced administrative leave as a result of the FBI’s accusations, but, and correct me if I’m wrong, this is a punishable offense, stealing organizational equipment.

And, though I don’t have any legal training, I’m pretty positive that this would constitute a confession on Aaron’s part. Right?

Best,

Ted Hayward

You’re right. You’re not supposed to be handling any business while on forced administrative leave. Please stop using organizational equipment – i.e., server space for these e-mails – until your misuse of company equipment has been fully investigated by the authorities.

Also, it’s a damn bulletin board. We’ll get another one from one of the empty offices.

Best,

James Gottfried

  1. As usual the umbrella company does it figures will little or no regard for the cost centre budgets and revenue concerns.

    It is about time the bean counters understand the company profits are a result of numerous P&L efforts from from quarter to quarter.

    People are always a firm’s best asset. Company knowledge is socially constructed therefore company innovative edge is all about harnessing such knowledge and allowing collaboration in order to produce “new knowledge”.

    The organisations that understand this will be here in 10, 20, 30 years time. The ones that fail to understand are already insolvent.

  2. I think you are mistaken (actually I know) that the missing notice board even gives a toss if it is found or not.

    Thus winning is not even important so you see.
