You might step out of your looking great, but you can count on the rains to de-glam you. What is worse, you might just start running a fever if you stay in those wet clothes. So employees, if you care at all about your health and appearance at work, you need to ensure that you have the following things stocked in your office drawer:
Change of clothing:
Keep an extra set of clothes in office, and that includes socks if you are a man. If you spend the day in soaking wet clothes, you are guaranteed to fall sick. Moreover, your clinging clothes are not going to do much for an impression.
Towel: This is an absolute must. You will need it especially to dry your hair. It will not consume too much space in your drawer so you are not losing anything by keeping a towel handy in your drawer.
If your socks are wet, take them off pronto and slip into a dry pair of slippers which also form ‘a must’ requirement.
Keep some Tissue papers in your bag too. You will need them to wipe off the dirt and muck that sticks to your clothes or bag in the rains.
If your makeup has run, you certainly won’t make a pretty picture when you enter office. We suggest you keep some waterproof makeup items like eyeliner, foundation handy, so that you don’t scare your colleagues away.
You need to keep a couple of plastic bags in your drawer if you do not want your valuables to get wet. From documents to lunch boxes, plastic bags can shield all your essentials.
One more ‘must’ is that your bag carrying office papers must be absolutely rain and water proof.
What an employee will never say …
Twelve things you’ll never hear an employee tell his /her boss:
1) Never give me work in the morning. Always wait until 5:00 and then bring it to me. The challenge of a deadline is always refreshing.
2) If it is really a ‘rush job’ run in and interrupt me every 10 minutes to inquire how it is going. That greatly aids my efficiency.
3) Always leave without telling anyone where you are going. It gives me a chance to be creative when someone asks where you are.
4) If my arms are full of papers, boxes, books or supplies, do not open the door for me. I might need to learn how to function as, a paraplegic in future and opening doors is good training.
5) If you give me more than one job to do, do not tell me which job is to be done on priority. Let me guess.
6) Do your best to keep me late. I like the office and really have nowhere to go or anything to do.
7) If a job I do please you keep it a secret. Leaks like that can get me a promotion.
8) If you don’t like my work, tell everyone. I like my name to be popular in conversations.
9) If you have special instructions for a job, don’t write them down. If fact, save them until the job is almost done.
10) Never introduce me to the people you are with. When you refer to them later, my shrewd deductions will identify them.
11) Be nice to me only when the job I’m dong for you can really change your life.
12) Tell me all your little problems. No one else has any. It’s nice to know some one is less fortunate.
