Fracas in the Halls of Academe.
What really puts a bee in the bonnet of the elbow patch and pipe set atop the hill at Yukon College?
- Suspicious selection of the president?
- Assault in the residence?
- Bears in the garbage bin?
- Turnover in the computer support department?
Answer: None of the above. No, only one topic could launch an all-out week-long e-mail melee, dragging in everyone from the union president to the registrar to the facilities supervisor:
And not just sandwiches, but the precise location where said sandwiches -- charitable sandwiches! -- might be assembled.
There's really no point in continuing to describe this ridiculous episode, other than to repeat, one last time, "sandwiches."
I made a filter in my email - "filter on subject = any matching Sandwich, send to = trash"
I use something similar to knock out the daily "lunch special" messages. At least they don't arrive with huge MS Word attachments anymore.
