You could be forgiven for

You could be forgiven for thinking that my work place is the butt of a practical joke or an ill timed april fools jest but unfortunately not. We recently received a mail to say that on monday all the clocks would be removed and no watches would be allowed – a representative would let staff know when it was lunch and when it was home time in an attempt to relieve workplace stress or something equally inane. I thought it was a joke and ignored it .. until this mail came today
“Just a reminder that this coming Monday is our Stop the Clock day!

Don’t forget to leave your watches at home and enjoy the day without being
controlled by time! (N.B. If you do wear your watch, you may be asked to
leave it at reception.)
Thank god I will still be in the US! mad the lot of them…
