Dear mouse,

Today is the birthday of my twin brothers.

Happy Birthday to YOUS.(plural di ba?)

My brother sends me e-mails (like what you will find below) that friends of his friends of his friends of his friends forward him.

This one is for a very loyal reader/slash e-mail forwarder too, bayi from Malaysia who is the HR head of their company.

Re: Mandatory Office Equipment (MOE)

Effective immediately, all employees will be required to maintain in their workplace the following mandatory office equipment, ("MOE") and shall become familiar with its proper use.

The intent is to relieve stress, promote a friendly work environment and assist employees in generally coping with their co-workers and supervisors.

All employees are to keep with them MOE consisting of two (2) paperclips and two (2) elastic bands. See Figure 1 below.

Fig 1: MOE - Paperclips and Elastic Bands.

If you do not already have access to this equipment, please get it from the supply cabinet. All MOE shall be assembled and kept ready as shown in Figure 2.

Whenever an employee deems it necessary, or if your supervisor drops off a ton of work on your desk at 4:45 pm on a Friday, place MOE on head as illustrated in Figure 3.

We hope that this will help you and promote a friendlier work environment.

Enjoy your day.

PS May also be used at home on weekend.
