out to the country to minister to an out-patient.

home when they ran out of gas. They were standing beside their car
on the shoulder when a truck approached.
Seeing ladies of the cloth in distress,
the driver stopped to offer his help.
The nuns explained they needed some gas.
The driver of the truck said he would
gladly drain some from his tank, but he didn't have a bucket or
One of the nuns dug out a clean bedpan and
asked the driver if he could use it.
He said yes, and proceeded to drain a
couple of quarts of gas into the pan. He waved good-bye to the
nuns and left.
The nuns were carefully pouring the
precious fluid into their gas tank when the highway patrol came

minute, then he said, "Sisters, I don't think it will work, but I
sure do admire your faith!"

will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness.
If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to
- Surgery: Operations are now
banned. As long as you are an employee here, you will need all
your organs. You should not consider removing anything. We hired
you intact. To have something removed constitutes a breach of
- Bereavement Leave: This is no
excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead
friends, relatives, or coworkers. Every effort should be made to
have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases,
where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be
scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to
work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour
early, provided your share of the work in done enough.
- Your Own Death: This will be
accepted as an excuse. However, we require at least two weeks
notice as it is your duty to train your replacement.
- Restroom Use: Entirely too
much time is being spent in the restroom. In the future, we will
follow the practice of going in alphabetical order. For
instance, all employees whose names begin with "A" will go from
8:00 to 8:10, employees whose names begin with "B" will go from
8:10 to 8:20 and so on. If you're unable to go at your allotted
time, it will be necessary to wait until the next day when your
turn comes again. In extreme emergencies, employees may swap
their time with a coworker. Both employees' supervisors must
approve, in writing, this exchange. In addition, there is now a
strict 3-minute limit in the stalls. At the end of three
minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract
and the stall door will open.
Thank you for your loyalty to our
company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience.
Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints,
frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations,
allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternations, or input
should be directed elsewhere.
Have a nice week. The management
