>My company is making this annoying effort to “go green.” I don’t mind going green, if it’s going to save me time and money. Otherwise, it’s just useless.
The “office manager” sent out a memo from corporate with some green guidelines about not using plastic cutlery, printing on 2 sides of paper, using ceramic mugs for coffee, and other completely useless tips.
Another department recently told us to use the new cover sheets on the TPS reports. The problem is that the new cover sheets are actually 3 pages instead of just the 1 page old version. How is this green? Not to mention I can’t even read the damn things. The pertinent information is hidden in the middle of the page instead of the top, plus there is no date on it. How the hell am I supposed to know when I submitted it to my 8 bosses?
Then of course there are the technical glitches. The cover sheet word doc flipped out today and kept telling me to put in a real number. Are there fake numbers? If so, I certainly don’t have time to use them. Then all the number fields expanded to 3 times their typical size and made the form 2 pages longer. So very green…
