The Diva is seriously thinking of proposing this to the management. In form of ppt presentation and all. In the conference room. The Diva had once suggested this to her class teacher at the age of 10. It was dismissed, of course. For political reasons. Being of distinctly lower intelligence, the class teacher had not wanted to acknowledge the inspirational thoughts of the Diva and with cunning had rubbished the idea and brushed it under the carpet. But God paid the teacher back. Last heard, both offspring of the said teacher work at organizations which are open even on 2nd and 4th Saturdays. Hah!
Anyway, so coming back to the topic of Wednesdays, think of all the benefits that will accrue to mankind with this one simple act
1. We will save petrol: Oil is a depleting resource, scream headlines. Wars have happened over this very same drink of modernization. It is our duty to conserve fuel. Or our future generations will not be able to travel to work even on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays! Cut one day of travel out. Sleep.
2. Costs will be cut: Think of all the coffee expenses that the company will save. Go to your accounts department. Tell them to show you tea/coffee expenditures of the company. After you have recovered from the heart attack, start a petition. Get all employees to sign it. Attach said tea/coffee bills and take it to the management. The management will thank you.
3. You really think I’m going to give away all my arguments in a blog so public. Hah! People from work read this blog. Someone may just squeal on me. And then the management will have all answers ready. So the Diva is going to be cunning and keep some thoughts to herself.
I’m off now to make the presentation. It requires deep concentration and loads of time. Will keep you all posted on the developments.
